WE WORK FOR YOU. In more ways than you may know.
Formed in 1965 with the merger of Central Welding Supply and McGowan Welding, Central McGowan has steadily grown from a welding gas and supply company to a diversified business with customers across more than 20 industries. Today, we supply argon, nitrogen, other gases and specialty blends as well as abrasives, tools and equipment to welders and other industrial businesses. Medical oxygen and nitrous oxide to hospitals and dentist offices. Propane for backyard grills. CO2 and beverage systems that give you a perfect tap beer at your favorite pub and the bubbles in your carbonated beverage. And dry ice for cooling, cleaning and industrial blasting.
And that’s just the beginning.
We even build custom robotic and automation technologies and solutions, and have 3 retail stores —for when delivery just won’t do. All are open 6 days a week and stocked with the most common items for the home hobbyist and large manufacturer… and everyone in between.
Together, we strive to be the everyday heroes who with our partners help make life work better.
