An Arizona-based industrial-gas supplier is expanding its operations into the Midwest with the purchase of a small, independent operator in Fort Wayne.
Taronis Fuels Inc. says it has assumed control of the Indiana company that was already a distributor of Taronis’ welding gas products.
Taronis says it was approached by sales personnel from the Indiana operation who were looking to grow the Indiana operation but lacked assets and resources.
“We had a legacy relationship with the key sales staff at their prior company for a number of years,” said Scott Mahoney, Taronis chief executive officer. “For them to approach us and to ultimately join our team is a strong endorsement of our reputation in the industry. We are excited to enter into a new and promising market, and we are honored to expand our team of excellent industry professionals to include our new Fort Wayne employees,”
The company operates 24 industrial gas supply locations in Florida, Louisiana, Texas, California, and now Indiana.
