Brecko Corporation, based in Abilene, Texas, is a United States Distributor for Magna Welding Alloys - the most advanced alloys specifically designed for the maintenance welding industry.

Magna recognizes that a production-line welder typically deals with one form of welding every day and can purchase rods or alloys specific to that purpose, rather easily.  However, the "maintenance welder" is asked to repair a variety of different metals, in different environments, and often does not know what he will encounter until he actually sees the problem.

Magna Welding Alloys are designed specifically for exactly that situation.  If you have a "welding problem", it is likely that Magna has a "welding solution".

Magna Welding Alloys are manufactured by Magna Industrial Co. Ltd., which is headquartered in Hong Kong.  Their website is:

Magna Industrial is a Wholly-owned subsidiary of Illinois Tool Works, Inc., a Fortune 200 company, listed on the New York Stock Exchange (Symbol ITW).
