About Westport Welding

Westport Welding Innovation is here to bridge the gaps between the knowledge of welding and inspection between the company's management, operations, and engineering; and to align a commissioning company's expectations with their specifications. Our team excels at breaking down the highly specialized and peculiar jargon that surrounds welding and inspection. Decision makers are enabled to make better choices based on clearer understanding of what is required. We also partner with these organizations to implement these changes and along with continuous improvement, give these companies a competitive advantage by streamlining their welding inspection workflow.

Westport Welding Innovation was founded in 2016 by Patrick Staunton to offer organizations a deeper understanding of how to control their welding and inspection costs, quality and productivity.

Patrick is a 2001 Graduate of the Ohio State University’s acclaimed Welding Engineering program, and currently serves as the President of the Welding Engineering Alumni Society.  He is a certified LEAN 6-sigma green belt and an ASQ certified manager of quality and organizational excellence.
