Founded in 1977, B&J Welding Supply supplies industrial gases and propane to the industrial, energy, agricultural and medical end markets in West Texas. The investment will allow the company to pursue geographic and product offering expansion, according to a May 21 news release.

“B&J Welding Supply is proud to partner with Cordatus in its latest initiative aimed at expanding to new markets and elevating the customer experience to new heights,” B&J Welding Supply’s Jason Jones said. Jones will stay in place as CEO, board member and shareholder.
