Our Mission Began in 1968Richard Bennett Weldcoa Founder & Weldcoa CEO H. Peter Nielsen President

Founder Richard Bennett created Weldcoa in 1968 to support his Gas & Welding Distributorship, Benster Welding. He 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 for major and regional distributors throughout North America.

“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.
