Tech Air, a national distributor of industrial, medical, and specialty gases and related equipment and supplies, has acquired Scully Welding Supply Corporation and Scully Propane Service Corp of Collingdale, Pennsylvania to strengthen its northeast presence.

Scully is a distributor of propane, industrial and welding supplies, and industrial gases servicing the greater-Philadelphia region from its four locations. 

This is the 27th add-on acquisition for Tech Air under the ownership of CI Capital.

Founded in 1947, Scully serves Southeastern Pennsylvania with residential and commercial propane, industrial gases, and welding supplies, as well as installation and repair services. Scully’s large and diverse customer base across a broad region provides Tech Air with an attractive opportunity to achieve scale and synergies with its existing business in surrounding areas.

Myles Dempsey, Jr., CEO of Tech Air, said, “We are excited to gain the assets, resources, and expertise of a group with such a strong and well-established reputation. Since its founding in 1947, Scully has built and expanded its services in a key commercial region of the country. We welcome the team to Tech Air and look forward to sharing success as we continue to build our business together.”

Joost Thesseling, Managing Director at CI Capital, said, “We are pleased with the progress that Tech Air continues to make as it builds a truly national business with significant gas distribution and welding supply operations from its beginnings as a regional company. The acquisition of Scully represents another high quality transaction for Tech Air as the company executes its growth strategy.”
