Chemweld, Inc.

Chemweld, Inc.

Chemweld, Inc., a family owned and operated company, has been serving the welding industry for over 35 years. In 1975, founder Garry McKenna saw a need in the metalworking industry for a superior cutting fuel to replace expensive and unsafe acetylene. Chemweld has been supplying Chemolene cutting fuel through out the United States since. In 1997, Chemweld expanded by opening one of the first DOT certified cylinder testing facilities in the Southeast. Chemweld's success has been built on the foundation of excellent customer service, a tradition that Garry's daughter Linda McKenna Smith plans to continue as the current company President. Chemweld continues to grow as the demand to replace acetylene and propylene with a more cost effective, safer and environmentally friendly fuel rises. In addition, the cylinder testing division recently added state-of-the-art ultrasonic testing equipment to be able to offer their customers the very best in cylinder maintenance services.
