Tech Air acquires Angelus Welding

Tech Air, a Connecticut-based distributor of industrial, medical, and specialty gases and related equipment and supplies, has completed the acquisition of Angelus Welding Inc.

Based in Los Angeles, Angelus is a distributor of welding & industrial supplies and industrial gases.

Angelus was founded in 1947 and is one of the oldest distributors of industrial gases in Los Angeles. The company primarily serves customers in the entertainment, glassblowing and metal fabrication industries. Angelus will be integrated into Tech Air of California (doing business as Geneva Gas & Supply), which is led by Glen Irving. The president of Angelus, Chris Donohue, along with family members Alexis and Jolene Donohue, will remain actively involved with the company moving forward.

“The acquisition of Angelus greatly enhances our position in the Los Angeles market, adding a new location in East LA to complement our existing locations in North Hollywood and Long Beach. We welcome Chris and the rest of the Angelus team to Tech Air and look forward to supporting their continued growth and success,” said Myles Dempsey Jr., chief executive officer of Tech Air.

“We are proud of the reputation Angelus has with its customers for excellent customer service and deep industry knowledge. Both Tech Air and Angelus have historically put customers and employees first, making Glen Irving and the Tech Air team a natural fit. We will continue this tradition, in partnership with Tech Air,” said Donohue.
