Industry Leaders

Today Weldcoa’s patented automated systems are considered the Global Leader in both Next-Step Technology and Long-Term Reliability


Constant Innovation Since 1968 

How It All Began - Our Story

Founder Richard Bennett created Weldcoa
 to support his Gas & Welding Distributorship, Benster               Welding, in 1968. We have been supporting the Cylinder Gas Industry ever since. Richard Bennett                         was not an engineer, he was an inventor. Weldcoa was his “Mad Scientist” shop where he experimented        with America’s very first Palletized Cylinder Transportation System. From there, Weldcoa has grown into       an A to Z supplier of cylinder transportation, storage, and filling.

“We have a deep bench of industry professionals who filled cylinders, delivered cylinders and who         actually worked with the equipment we design. That is a huge distinction between us and our competitors. Companies recognize our value because our results are not only immediate, but also long term.”

Maynard "Bud" Klotz, Vice President and Co-Owner of Weldcoa

Today Weldcoa’s patented automated systems are considered the Global Leader in both Next-Step Technology and Long-Term Reliability. Weldcoa’s patented Pallet System has grown into the most widely used system in North America.
