Delta, a Stockton, CA-based safety distributor, has annual sales of about $9 million. The acquired business will greatly enhance the safety products capabilities of Airgas Northern California & Nevada, one of 12 regional companies within Airgas. Airgas NCN is headquartered in Sacramento, CA.
Airgas is the largest U.S. distributor of industrial, specialty and medical gases, welding supplies and related safety products. Nationally, it offers safety products through branch-based sales, telesales, catalog and eBusiness channels.
As part of the acquisition, Airgas NCN will offer employment to most of the 30 employees of Delta Safety Supply.
"We look forward to welcoming the Delta associates to our team and are excited about offering Delta's customers a broader product range to meet their needs," said Jim McCarthy, president of Airgas NCN.
Airgas President and Chief Operating Officer Glenn Fischer commented: "Delta's business will complement our national safety sales focus by giving us a much stronger presence in the Northern California market. This targeted acquisition fits well with our overall strategy to be a leader in the safety products field."
"We believe this is an exciting move for both Delta and Airgas and look forward to joining Airgas, one of the biggest names in the safety business," said Dennis Regan, owner of Delta Safety, who will join Airgas NCN in a sales support and development role.
