Bringing More Than 100 Years of Experience and Service to You, Our Customer
Airweld "Bulks" Up!
Neither rain, nor snow, nor sleet nor any of the “extreme” weather we’ve been experiencing of late will stop Airweld from ensuring a smooth and constant supply of liquid nitrogen to our customers! “We are proud to introduce our liquid nitrogen trucks that will be delivering to our bulk and micro-bulk customers,” said Airweld President Eric Lundquist. “The trucks will be filled from our new 15,000-gallon bulk nitrogen tank and ensure that our customers requirements will be satisfied no matter what Mother Nature throws in our path,” he added.

Lundquist said that Airweld is also considering the addition of bulk argon and oxygen trucks and large capacity storage tanks for these products in the near future. “Our customers have invested their trust in us and we, in turn, are investing in the trucks and infrastructure to fulfill their needs in a timely manner,” he concluded.
Airweld Honored for 102 Years of Service
Airweld was presented with the Messer Centurion Award at the Messer Distributor Group’s (MDG) annual meeting June 3 rd in Louisville, Kentucky. The award recognizes Airweld’s 102 years of commitment and dedication to the gases and welding supply industry.

“I’ve been blessed to spend more than 48 years offering solutions and top service to our customer partners, beamed Airweld CEO John Zak, Sr. " I love this business and the cherished friends I have made along the way," he added.

John's son and Airweld CFO, John Zak, Jr., considered, " This award is significant because it entails so many people with so many relationships among customers and suppliers over a very long time period. What this means to mean is that I had better keep it going!"

Airweld President Eric Lundquist praised long-standing relationships with vendor partners. “Our success is predicated on our partner’s responsiveness to our needs and that of our customers,” he pointed out.

Airweld Vice President and former GAWDA President Tom Biedermann added, “In my forty-two years with the organization I have witnessed positive changes and tremendous growth. I am pleased that my son Zach has joined the company and is carrying on the tradition.”

Meet Mike Gomez
Mike Gomez is here to "pump it up" both professionally and personally. This 26 year Airweld veteran fills cylinders at our Patchogue branch followed by a daily exercise and body building regime that he loves!

When not working or working out, this devoted dad likes to spend time in the great outdoors with his three children and drive around in his "hot" Dodge Dakota. "I enjoy the friendship, camaraderie and family-like environment of Airweld," Mike observed. This "fill-in" driver also enjoys the diverse industries that Airweld serves.
Meet Chris Lee
Chris Lee was working in the restaurant and hotel business and found the hospitality industry inhospitable! Knowing that he was seeking a change, Airweld’s John McNulty reached out and “recruited” him. Eleven years later, after learning all aspects of the welding supply biz, Chris is running cylinder production and control at our Patchogue location as well as serving our customers. “I am ‘tankful’ to John for introducing me to Airweld,” Chris laughed. “I really love the way this company embraces its people, just like family,” he added.
In his spare time Chris enjoys “anything with an engine in it.” He is a car and truck enthusiast and loves tooling around on his ATV.
