Procurement



It's all about seizing the day.

Whether upstream or midstream, consistency of both product and delivery can mean the difference between being able to capitalize on an opportunity—or wasting capital. Which side of the equation wins depends in large part on the quality of your supply partners.

With so many suppliers making the same promise, how can you make an informed buying decision? Are all product offerings the same? Is every distribution network created equally? How about services? Experience? Objectivity?

Can you afford to assume all suppliers are equal?

 

Be resourceful

We’re committed to adding more value to your supply chain. More simplicity. More transparency. More consistency. And more standardization.

As one of the nation's leading single-source suppliers of all things gases, welding and safety, we can also help improve your organization on many levels, including:

  • Supply-chain expertise that keeps your sites producing
  • Application expertise for welding, cutting and safety products
  • Deep understanding of what it takes for you to be successful

Managing multiple suppliers distracts you from core tasks of energy exploration and transportation. Multiple vendors complicate your supply chain and lead to fragmentation. Acting as a single point of accountability, we help simplify and standardize your operation by providing:

  • Robust metrics
  • Application expertise
  • Key performance indicators
  • Process analysis and training
  • Superior gas blends

 

Leverage our expertise

We leverage our expertise in gas delivery, hydrocarbon standards, industry regulation, inventory management and supply-chain efficiencies. And where other suppliers limit their recommendations to proprietary offerings, we provide unbiased opinions on an unrivaled range of products and services. Also, our ability to source gas from a national network of 300 high-pressure filling plants means you never have to worry about gas supply interruptions.

Discover what’s been missing from your buying strategy by choosing a procurement partner that can help measure and monitor your success.
