My Grandfather W.C. Benton completed the construction of the current location in July of 1946. The building was originally designed to be a International Harvester Truck and Tractor Dealership. In the mid 60's my father and grandfather got into the welding supply business and by 1969 they began their first delivery route. We still have some of the same customers today, even from the late 60's. As the industry around Covington grew so did the welding supply business and now we serve over nine counties and continue to add new customers. Customers ranging from the individual with one set of bottles to a international company with several location that have hundreds of bottles and we enjoy doing business with them all.
