Minneapolis, MN, July 28, 2023 – Minneapolis based All Safe Global expands its national presence by acquiring Sky Cylinder Testing, Inc. (“Sky Cylinder”).
All Safe Global (“ASG”) (allsafe.net), a leader in the compressed gas equipment industry, is pleased to announce its acquisition of Sky Cylinder Testing, Inc. with locations in both Evansville, IN, and Griffin, GA. The combination makes ASG the largest independent cylinder requalification company in the country.
Sky Cylinder Testing was established in 1999 in Indiana to requalify high pressure cylinders, propane cylinders, and refrigerant containers for the compressed gas industry. It is a leader in hydrostatic and ultrasonic testing. Sky expanded into the Southeast in 2014, when it added its Georgia plant.
ASG’s latest acquisition expands its national presence into the East Coast, giving it service centers in Minnesota, Arizona, Indiana and Georgia. ASG provides DOT cylinder requalification services in addition to wholesaling cylinders, valves and parts.
“This is a major step forward in fulfilling our strategy of building a national network of cylinder requalification centers,” said Matt Boettner, President and CEO of All Safe Global. “Our acquisition of Sky Cylinder brings scale and extends our reach to serve our customers better. Sky shares our commitment to quality, customer satisfaction and safety. Its experienced team will help us continue to provide customers with industry-leading products and services.”
Rick Richardson, former CEO and founder of Sky Cylinder Testing, said: “I’m confident our customers will benefit from All Safe Global’s expansion into the eastern U.S. with continued expert service and now the addition of product sales.”
Scott Elliott, formerly with Sky Cylinder Testing and now Vice President and General Manager of ASG’s eastern operations said: “We are excited about combining our expertise in cylinder requalification with ASG’s extensive line of products and services. And, we look forward to being part of a growing company that furthers our appeal with national customers.”
Beyond expanding ASG’s geographic footprint, this acquisition provides additional scale and purchasing power to the company’s growing business. The combination will enhance ASG’s 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. The combined company’s trucking fleet makes regularly scheduled routes for pickup and delivery allowing customers to reduce costs while focusing on their core gas business. ASG’s truck routes, services, and new product distribution capabilities will extend to the East Coast with reduced logistics costs.
All Safe Global (allsafe.net) is a national 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, Southwest, and Southeast. ASG continues to seek acquisition opportunities in the United States to continue its expansion.
