Central Welding Supply is expanding its local service to Central Alaska after completing the construction of its first location in the US state.

The site, located in Wasilla, is the US-based company’s 22nd retail outlet and features a retail store, warehouse, offices and cylinder storage yard. The new location aims to support retail sales for walk-in customers and will serve as a central point for distribution throughout the Mat-Su Valley.

Through the added location Central Welding Supply will be able to provide direct delivery to customers in Wasilla, Anchorage and Palmer, as well as some limited deliveries to Seward and the Kenai Peninsula.

CEO Dale Wilton enthused, “We’ve served customers in Alaska for many years, through regular shipments to Central Alaska, South East Alaska, Kodiak and the Aleutian Island chain. Our new Wasilla location will provide more immediate access to needed equipment and supplied for customers in Alaska.”

“We appreciate our customers in Alaska and believe the new location in Wasilla will position us well to handle customer needs throughout Central Alaska,” he added.

The new store is scheduled to open on 27th February, 2017.

Founded in 1975 in Washington, Central Welding Supply now operates from 22 locations in the North-West region of the US and is a large regional distributor of industrial gases, bulk and micro-bulk gases, beverage gases, laser gases, specialty gases, medical gases and welding supplies.
