SGD Inc., a single source wholesale supplier of specialty gas equipment, has acquired Special Gas Supplies LLC.
The new acquisition will be operated as part of a division of SGD Inc., and will be directed by Scott Varian, Vice President of Operations.
Special Gas Supplies LLC is a compressed gas cylinder specialist which supplies cylinder fillers of shrink wrap, tamper-proof seals, status tags, cylinder status neck ring discs, cylinder netting and lecture bottles among other devices.
Frank Scornavacca, president of SGD described the move as a, “natural extension”. He elaborated, “The addition of Special Gas Supplies to SGD is a natural extension of our relationship with compressed cylinder gas fillers to expand our offerings to better serve them.$quot;
$quot;Of course the users can expect the same great customer and delivery service and unique support program that they have become accustomed to with SGD. With one phone call, fax or email, the customer can not only purchase his or her gas equipment requirements, but also their operational supply needs.”
He added, “This is our first acquisition, but certainly not our last one. We are looking at other acquisition possibilities to broaden our offerings to our customers.”
