Welding industry in India has been attracting women welders, albeit in small number. Most of the women in India and in other parts of the world for a long time have been made to believe that welding and other manufacturing jobs are not for them. This notion prevailed for ages because the environment in welding jobs was associated with dust, darkness and danger. Kemppi has broken the glass ceiling for women to enter into this profession.
Kemppi has transformed welding workstations to pleasing environments. Thanks to the advancements in welding technology, more women in taking up welding jobs and in addressing the cultural and gender gap that has been there in the field. The Indian welding industry is also taking up measure to make it inclusive of women by incentivizing them. With advancements in technology, higher salaries, safer environment, and other national level competitions which recognise the talent and skill among women who weld, welding becomes an exciting career for women motivating many women to join.
