In 1936, Harold A. Harris founded Harris Welding Works, and for the past 78 years, the business has remained in the Harris family, owned and operated through four generations – never moved, never sold. Our store on Auburn Boulevard is still located where the original Harris Welding Works shop stood. Our success through almost eight decades is attributed to our tradition of providing excellent and personal customer service for companies both large and small. Keeping tradition alive and well, we plan on being around for another 78 years. Today, HARRIS INDUSTRIAL GASES is the largest independent provider of industrial, medical, and specialty gases, along with welding equipment and supplies, in the Greater Sacramento Area. Not only do we carry top-of-the-line and state-of-the-art welding equipment and supplies, we also deliver to many industrial, medical, and specialty gases to hundreds of businesses, both large and small, across this nine-county area of Northern California.
When you call HARRIS INDUSTRIAL GASES on the telephone, your call will never be answered by an automated telephone message with multiple menu options; you’ll be greeted by a real person, one of our friendly and familiar product and service specialists. That’s because we’ve always prided ourselves on having long-term employees with little turnover. We know and greet a large percentage of our customers by face and name – another HARRIS tradition – due to our small but helpful staff.
