WestAir Gases & Equipment, Inc. has announced the opening of two new locations in Fontana and Long Beach, California.

WestAir is already the largest independent distributor of gases and equipment in the US Southwest, with locations in California, Arizona and Texas.

Now, the company is growing further with two new sites that cater for an expanding customer base in the region.

President & COO Steve Byers explained, “These locations will provide accessibility for our expanding customer base and allow us to continue our commitment to exceptional customer service in those areas.”

The South West region has enjoyed strong economic growth since 2000, with a major contributor to this wealth being the large oil and gas/petrochemical industries. The region has an industrial gas market to match – the second-largest of the eight regions of the US and also home to the largest onsite supply market in the country, according to gasworld Business Intelligence.

The South West market, which achieved revenues of just under $4.3bn in 2015, is largely dominated by four of the industry’s major players – Praxair, Air Liquide, Air Products and Linde – with independent producers and distributors accounting for around 15% of the market.
