nexAir Acquires Moore Oxygen Supply Inc.

New customers to benefit from continued service and operational excellence

Memphis, Tenn. (July 17, 2017) – nexAir, a leading distributor of atmospheric gases and welding supplies, today announced it has acquired Moore Oxygen Supply Inc., the Georgia-based supplier of industrial and medical gases and welding supplies. The transaction closed on July 14 and Moore Oxygen Supply customers will begin to be serviced by nexAir today and will not experience any disruption or delay of service.

“Both nexAir and Moore Oxygen Supply are multi-generation, family-owned companies, and we understand the importance of providing the highest quality of service,” said Kevin McEniry, CEO at nexAir. “We welcome our new customers to the nexAir family and look forward to enhancing the product offerings for all customers in the region.”

Founded in LaGrange, Georgia in 1965, Moore Oxygen Supply served hundreds of customers in Western Georgia and Eastern Alabama with industrial, medical and specialty gases as well as welding supplies and bulk liquid gas. nexAir will spend the coming weeks working with new customers to ensure a smooth transition of services and hard goods as well as implementing its culture of safety and efficiency across the expanded area. New customers will be granted access to the company’s seasoned industry expertise in industrial and specialty gases, welding supplies, automation trends and the latest welding procedures.

Third-generation, family-owned nexAir has grown to become one of the largest distributors of atmospheric gases and welding supplies in the country. This acquisition bolsters the company’s footprint in the Southeastern U.S., where nexAir already operates several branches. Earlier this year, nexAir acquired the helium and industrial gas business segment of Volunteer Fire Extinguisher Co., a fire safety services company in East Tennessee.
