Minnesota-based All Safe Global continues its expansion by acquiring Thunderbird Cylinder of Phoenix, AZ.

All Safe Global (ASG), a leader in the compressed gas equipment industry, is pleased to announce its recent acquisition of Arizona-based Thunderbird Cylinder. Thunderbird Cylinder has been providing compressed gas cylinder requalification, refurbishment and maintenance services for over 70 years. The services provided by ASG and Thunderbird parallel each other – both dedicated to safety, customer service, best practices, and DOT compliance. Each location offers hydrostatic testing, ultrasonic examination, cylinder refurbishment, visual inspection, and wide variety of replacement products, equipment customization, branding services and more.

“All Safe Global’s acquisition of Thunderbird expands our presence in the western United States and is an important step toward realizing our vision of building a national network of cylinder requalification centers” said Matt Boettner, President and CEO, All Safe Global. “Thunderbird’s core values and strong reputation for compliance, safety and service bolsters ASG’s long tradition of providing our customers with industry leading products and services.”

“Both companies come to the table with a wealth of experience and a shared vision of compliance and service,” said Thunderbird Cylinder owner Fred Nachman. “Together, we look forward to blending our expertise, bringing exceptional and standardized services on a national scale to the compressed gas industry.”

This acquisition expands ASG’s geographic footprint and provides additional scale to the company’s growing business. The combination will enhance our ability to provide new and current customers with exceptional service, quality products, and fast turn-around times. ASG offers expansive truck routes and competitive shipping services to make delivery fast and affordable for customers in all geographical locations.

All Safe Global is a leading supplier, servicer and recycler of compressed gas equipment for multiple end-user applications. ASG’s customers include industry leaders in welding gas, specialty gas, craft beer, cold brewed coffee, cylinder waste disposal and alternative fuels. The company is headquartered in Minneapolis, MN and operates warehouse, service facilities, and office space in the Midwest and Southwest. ASG continues to seek additional acquisition opportunities throughout the United States to further expand its presence. The company welcomes communication with compressed gas fillers, customers, wholesalers, retailers, vendors and media contacts. For further information, please contact:
