Headquartered in Raleigh, NC, AWG attributes its continued growth and success to its dedicated team members. AWG has 585 employees who serve their customers in over 30 states and Canada. With 13 gas fill plants creating industrial, medical, specialty and beverage gas products and a fleet of over 250 trucks and trailers, AWG services large, bulk cryogenic gas customers as well as small one person businesses.

Future expansion plans include new facilities in Duncan, SC, and Chambersburg, PA.

More than just a B2B company, AWG distinguishes itself by being a solutions provider. With nearly 7 decades of experience, AWG has the knowledge and resources necessary to guide, support and adapt as a customer’s business grows. AWG treats each customer as a partnership and tailors a custom gas delivery system, delivery schedule and product mix that meets the customer’s current needs while maintaining future expansion abilities.
