A Moraine-based gas distributor with about 70 employees is now part of a national firm.
Airgas, which has about 18,000 employees at 1,100 locations, said in a statement that it acquired Weiler Welding Co. earlier this month.
Weiler Welding has six locations, including its Moraine office, and services Southwestern Ohio and Southwestern Indiana.
Weiler Welding Company is a full-service industrial gas, beverage gas and welding supply business.
The Dayton Daily News previously reported that Weiler Welding, a third-generation company that dates back to 1920, had been expanding its beverage gas business line that caters to restaurants, bars and the craft beer industry.
Airgas, a subsidiary of Paris-based Air Liquide, stated that Weiler Welding is the company’s 500th acquisition since it was founded in 1982.
“We are very happy to welcome Weiler Welding Company’s employees to Air Liquide and look forward to continuing to provide excellent service to our new customers,” stated Pascal Vinet, Airgas chief executive.
