Tech Air is a family company and a family of companies. We are an established and growing leader in the packaged gas industry – as a direct result of our unique products and services, and our highly successful and strategic acquisitions. As our national footprint expands, we remain dedicated to our customers and to an unflinching commitment to the highest safety standards, quality products, customer service and business efficiencies. We are there for them: around the corner and across the country.
Tech Air is a thriving family business. Our work ethic is unmatched, our momentum is undeniable. We love what we do, and we have fun doing it. But we take our business seriously. This balance is helping us to grow in strength and attract new ideas, opportunities, employees, customers and companies. The potential for continued success — for every employee, for every customer, and for the company as a whole — is virtually unlimited.
Since 2011, we have successfully completed 24 add-on acquisitions, and continue to identify additional opportunities to help our family grow and become even stronger.
We are highly flexible in structuring transactions and far more entrepreneurial in our management style than large consolidators. We provide the opportunity for sellers to reinvest a portion of their proceeds into our equity and, as a result, become true partners. Our management team owns approximately 30% of the company.
If you are interested in joining our growing family, please reach out to our CEO Myles Dempsey, Jr. All inquiries will be treated with the utmost confidentiality.
