About Metro Welding
Since 1937, we at Metro Welding Supply have prided ourselves on providing our customers quality packaged gases, welding products, and outstanding service. This locally owned and operated business continues to adhere to this philosophy, which has served our customers well and our business has grown steadily as a result. We are now the largest independently owned full service packaged gas producer in this region.
In 1997, we upgraded our filling plant to include a specialty gases production and analytical laboratory to service our growing institutional, laboratory, metal fabricating, military, aerospace, and laser processing customer base. The ability to produce our own ultra-high purity gases and certified blends enables us to supply the highest quality compressed gas products to meet the most stringent requirements. We expanded our lab in 2010 to meet the growing requirements of our customers for high quality specialty gas products. Our production/ analytical laboratory has a quality management program accredited to the ISO/IEC 17025:2005 standards..
In 1999, we expanded our Propane and Propylene pumping facilities. We provide pre-scheduled Propane lift-truck cylinder service to hundreds of customers within our service area with our fleet of twelve (12) cylinder delivery trucks. We also provide CHEM-O-LENE and Propylene (Appachi Gas) fuel gases for low cost/ high performance cutting, welding, and heating applications.
To serve our growing micro-bulk and large bulk gas customers, we deliver via our own Nitrogen, Oxygen, Carbon Dioxide, and Argon transporters. We also service bulk and cylinder Ammonia products through our partner, Tanner Industries. Our service department can design and install complete central gas supply systems for all types of applications. This capability sets us apart from our competition to provide our customers with safe, cost effective “Turn Key” solutions to all their compressed or liquefied gas requirements.
All our industrial gases and blends are produced to meet or exceed AWS 5.32 standard for welding shielding gases. Our standard operating procedures and quality assurance program include 100% production lot certification and batch number tracking to meet the most stringent civil, aerospace, and military requirements. This quality management program is accredited to the ISO/IEC 17025:2005 standards, which is very rare in our industry.
To best respond to our customers needs, we stock over forty major brands of welding, industrial, and safety products for your fabricating shop needs. We are a Flagship Distributor for Lincoln Electric and stock ESAB filler metals. We offer a full line of copper, nickel, aluminum, and stainless steel alloys for military, aerospace, and chemical processing industries. We also offer Special Metals, Arcos, Harris, Thyssen VDM, and Alcotec brand products to meet the most demanding filler metal specifications.
