He is a member of the Association for Career and Technical Education and a life member of the American Welding Society. As a coauthor of Modern Welding, he has guided this Goodheart-Willcox book through many revisions to keep it up to date and technically correct in order to maintain its value as an authoritative welding text. He is also a coauthor of Welding Fundamentals.

Kevin E. Bowditch - is a welding engineer specialist for Subaru of Indiana Automotive Inc. His welding experience includes working for two automotive firms, two aerospace firms, a construction company (building nuclear plants), and a precision sheet metal firm. While working for one aerospace firm, Kevin designed resistance welding and soldering equipment, special equipment for custom applications, and worked to develop correct welding and soldering schedules for customers. He has a Bachelor's degree in welding engineering from The Ohio State University and has attended specialized conferences and courses sponsored by the American Welding Society, American Society of Mechanical Engineers, and American National Standards Institute. Kevin joined his father as a coauthor of Modern Welding, beginning with the 1984 edition, and has been a coauthor of Welding Fundamentals since its first edition was published in 1991.

Mark A. Bowditch - joined the Bowditch team of welding authors in 1998, when he co-authored Oxyfuel Gas Welding with his brother Kevin. He has more than ten years' experience as an educator, holds both bachelor's and master's degrees, and has taken classes at the Hobart Welding School and the University of Hawaii's HCC welding program. He is a co-author of Modern Welding and Welding Fundamentals with his brother and father.
