Airgas, Inc., Radnor, PA, has added five new members to its Distributor Advisory Council, in recognition of the added distributor channel business Airgas now serves following the acquisition of BOC's U.S. packaged gas business.
New members: Airweld, Inc., Farmingdale, NY; Baker's Gas & Welding Supply, Lincoln Park, MI; Jones Welding and Industrial Supply, Albany, GA; Melo's Gas & Gear, Inc., Bakersfield, CA; and WISCO Industrial Supply, Chicago, IL.
The DAC formally meets with Airgas senior executives to discuss the Airgas Value-Added Distributor Program and issues that will enhance the services provided to distributors and resellers through Airgas' regional companies.
"With the recent BOC acquisition, the distributor channel now represents more than $100 million in annual revenues. In the last two years, Airgas has created the Airgas Value-Added Distributor program (AVAD) to ensure a consistent, yet locally driven approach to supporting distributor business within each Airgas regional company," said Pat Visintainer, senior vice president - sales, who coordinated the DAC meeting with Bill Higley, national distributor channel manager.
