• Airgas to Supply TDIndustries

    March 4, 2011
    Airgas will provide the Dallas, TX-based company with industrial gases, welding and safety products, as well as leased safety equipment from Oilind Safety.

    Airgas, Inc. has signed a three-year supply agreement with TDIndustries, Dallas, TX, a leading mechanical construction and facilities operations services provider, and the 1995 ContractingBusiness.com magazine Commercial HVAC Contractor of the Year.

    Airgas will provide TDIndustries with industrial gases, welding and safety products, including leased safety equipment from Oilind Safety, and leased welding equipment, welder certification trailers, generators, and compressors from Red-D-Arc Welderentals™ both of which are Airgas companies.

    “We’re pleased to partner with Airgas for providing our industrial gases, welding, and safety supply needs,” says Richard Frost, Purchasing Manager of TDIndustries Technology group in Dallas.

    “As the largest mechanical construction company in the south, we were in need of consistent national support without giving up local service and expertise that’s critical to our day-to-day business. Airgas fills that void with their national account program and over 1,100 locations to help improve our efficiencies and overall cost position," Frost says.

    “Airgas was serving a few TDIndustries locations in the local Houston and Dallas markets,” says Jason Vetterick, Airgas National Accounts Manager of Construction. “We wanted to prove the benefits Airgas offers and the real value of partnering with us. With this national accounts agreement we’ll be delivering value to all TDIndustries locations,” he says.

    Airgas was the recipient of TDIndustries' Premier Supplier Award for 2010 in the DFW market.

    “This means Airgas was one of ten vendors in 2010 that we felt provided the best customer service. We look forward to expanding upon and enabling that positive practice throughout our organization on a consistent and national basis,” says Stan Gregory, a TDIndustries purchasing manager.
