A Cost Effective and Safe Alternative to Micro Bulk For more than 60 years, Noble Gas Solutions has delivered gases, as well as hard goods, to customers throughout upstate New York’s Tech Valley region and into southern Vermont and western Massachusetts. It does so from its location in Albany, NY and from a branch location in Kingston, NY. David Mahoney, President of Noble Gas Solutions, notes that his business model started beating to a different rhythm in 1996, shortly after he acquired his Kingston branch location. That new rhythm has led to a notable percent increase in his specialty gas business in the last 15 years, fueled in part by a 200% uptick since 2008, in gases provided for research and development applications. Mahoney stated that while his business mix of 40-percent hard goods, 60-percent gases (up from 45 percent gases prior to 1996) is healthy, he would have no problem if his gas business grew to be 65 or 70 percent of the company.
