American Welding & Gas, Inc. (AWG), an independent manufacturer and distributor of industrial gases and welding supplies in the US, has acquired Norton Welding Supply, Inc.
Based in the state of Georgia, Norton serves the Georgia and South Carolina regions with industrial gases and welding supplies.
It is understood that this acquisition will solidify AWG’s position in this area of the US after the company also recently opened its 72nd independent production site in Columbia, South Carolina.
A press release signified, “The acquisition and opening of our new Columbia gas production and distribution centre is part of our core growth strategy in key markets and strengthens our commitment to efficiently supply our customers.”
Bill and Sandra Norton will stay within the company and will work with AWG’s associates for a smooth transition.
The publication sales division will now be known as the AWS Technical Standards Sales department and will continue to operate the AWS Bookstore.
Haun Welding Supply Inc., a US-based welding equipment merchant, has expanded its presence in the state of New York after acquiring two firms in the region.
