Industrial, Specialty Gas Supplier Coastal Welding Supply Celebrates 50 Years

coastal-50-logoFounded in Beaumont, Texas, in 1963, Coastal Welding Supply is your single source for all your industrial and specialty gas requirements. As this second generation company celebrates its 50th anniversary it continues its commitment of producing only the highest quality industrial gases and precision fabrication blends – while Coastal Specialty Gas focuses on its ultra high purity carrier gases, calibration standards, highly reactive volatile organic compounds and EPA protocols – all of which are produced locally and are available for prompt on-time delivery.

Coastal was a pioneer of the radio frequency identification (RFID) cylinder tracking and management system and most recently introduced AIM, the company’s cylinder gas Advanced Inventory Management program. AIM tracks cylinders with RFID tags, allows online order entry and order tracking while providing Coastal customers with the technology to control and distribute their cylinder costs more effectively – by jobsite, department or plant site.
