According to FactoryFix, welders are in high demand. Welders, cutters, solderers, and brazers use hand-held or remotely controlled equipment to join, repair, or cut metal parts and products. These positions may be performed outdoors, often in inclement weather, or indoors, sometimes in a confined area. They may work on a scaffold, high off the ground, and they occasionally must lift heavy objects and work in awkward positions. Most work full time and overtime is common.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) suggest that these professions will grow at least 3 percent per year through 2029. The welding industry will face a shortage of about 400,000 welders by 2024, according to the American Welding Society. The average age of a welder is 55 and the coming wave of retirements will leave the US with a great deficit in skilled welders in the work force. FactoryFix can help.
FactoryFix is a recruiting platform that connects manufacturers to vetted, skilled workers. The platform’s purpose is two-fold: 1) to help companies with hiring by providing access to a unique talent pool, vetting applicants, providing salary insights, generating job listings, and other tools to streamline the process. 2) It also allows job seekers to create profiles to easily find employers that fit their skill-sets, thus maximizing their earning potential.
Patrick O’Rahilly, Founder of FactoryFix, explains, “The result is a tremendous time and costs savings when compared to hiring through a traditional staffing agency or job board. Both have their advantages, but staffing firms are expensive, and job boards require a lot of time and effort to sift through unqualified candidates. The FactoryFix platform takes the best of each and combines it into a turn-key hiring solution made exclusively for this industry.
Companies that engage with a subscription are guaranteed qualified workers for their open positions. Some of the most popular jobs on FactoryFix include operator, maintenance, welding, machining, and automation roles.

Few hiring solutions offer quantifiable success rates in matching top talent to positions with the appropriate skill sets. Only through a robust platform that incorporates deeper-level matching can hiring efficiency be measured and maximized.
The results are clear, FactoryFix customers are benefiting from:
- At least 50% reduction in overall cost per hire
- 4 times faster to fill positions than traditional staffing
- 10 times more qualified candidates than posting on a job board
FactoryFix guarantees a total number of hires per year to ensure that customers meet their desired cost-per-hire target. The company recently introduced a 3-directional chat service, TalentText, to further expedite the hiring process. Request a demo. Connect with FactoryFix on LinkedIn.
