About Weiler Welding, Dayton Specialty Gas Supplier


 

Herbert Weiler founded Weiler Welding back in 1920 in a small garage on Valley Street in Dayton, Ohio. Under his continued leadership and foresight, Mr. Weiler continued to grow. This was a reason for him to move in 1927 to 318 East Second Street. In 1937, Weiler purchased the building on Turpin Lane and opened a welding fabrication shop.

Weiler Welding continued to grow. In 1942, Weiler Welding expanded and grew to 27 employees. During this expansion period, they moved next door to 324 E. Second Street. In 1945, while serving as President of Weiler Welding and raising his family, Mr Weiler found the time to be the co-founder of the National Welding Supply Association (NWSA). Weiler Welding incorporated on October 1, 1947. The company continued to grow and in December of 1951, Herb Jr. became an employee.

In 1965, the company built a 9,177 square foot shipping and receiving building and an electrode warehouse with oxygen and CO2 filling operations.

In 1971, Weiler Welding purchased the Airco plant in Moraine, Ohio and now had the capability of filling high pressure nitrogen cylinders and liquid nitrogen.

In 1974, Weiler constructed an 8000 square foot state of the art Welding Distributorship to house the industrial sales and corporate offices The passing of the baton of leadership from Mr. Weiler Sr. to Mr. Weiler Jr. occurred as Mr. Weiler Sr. celebrated the company's 60th anniversary and his 80th birthday.

In 1980, Weiler opened the first branch sales location and the welding shop moved to Moraine. Herbert G. Weiler, Jr. became the President in February of 1981.
