Why Westair? Who are these guys?
Ever thought about this? If you're welding in West Texas, you have. With 10 locations and assorted competitors, Westair is sometimes misunderstood and sometimes misrepresented. Are they the big guys or the local guys?
Here is the truth...Westair Gas & Equipment, L.P. was founded and is still led by Ken Morrison, a native of Abilene who has been in the welding supply business all his life. His father, Grady Morrison, started a welding supply business in Abilene in 1939 and brought Ken up in a family business that stressed home town pride and local customer service. As a young entrepreneur, Ken started his own company in 1981 and eventually sold it to a national corporation in 1988, exiting 5 years later with a better understanding of how "big business" works. Recognizing the best in both scenarios, Ken devised a new business model that relies on local business decisions with the support of a large corporate partner. "Think Big, Act Small" has become the motto and operating standard of Westair. With Praxair as the national partner and Ken as the local partner, Westair has grown from its inception in 1996 to the leader in West Texas in the welding supply and industrial gas business.
