Let Airgas be your partner in profit. By sourcing your gases, welding and safety products from Airgas—an industry-leading supplier—we can provide the right product and service solutions.

Efficient logistics solutions

Make sure your products arrive at market quickly, efficiently, and with the quality needed to secure the best price. As the leader in dry ice and refrigerants, we can help you keep your fleet efficient and your en route food fresh–so you can get the most profit from every delivery.


Total customized freezing/chilling solutions

Many companies can offer separate pieces to help solve your food freezing and cooling challenges, but Airgas can provide a complete custom solution.


Cleaning solutions

When it comes to keeping your equipment clean, you want it done right–and fast. Look no further than ColdJet® Dry Ice Blasting for a superior clean. Dry ice cleaning uses soft dry ice, accelerated at supersonic speeds, to create mini-explosions on the surface that lift the undesirable item off the underlying substrate. Better still, there’s no abrasive media to clean up. The dry ice simply sublimates/evaporates.

We’re always looking for ways to bring more economy and efficacy to your supply chain. As the industry’s only single source for all things gases, welding and safety, we had a few breakthroughs of our own, including developing customized online tools for purchasing and inventory management and providing a multi-channel customer service model:
