Maine Oxy was founded in 1929 by Joseph W. Albiston in Auburn, Maine under the name Maine Gas Service providing sales and service to home propane customers. In 1935 Maine Oxy was incorporated as Maine OxyAcetylene Supply Company and began providing welding supplies and industrial gases for customers in Auburn and Lewiston, Maine and surrounding communities. 

Maine Oxy is a thirdgeneration familymanaged company. James H. Albiston joined his father in 1948, and the current CEO, Bruce W. Albiston, joined his father in 1972.

From its modest beginnings, Maine Oxy has expanded to a company with multiple sales and manufacturing locations and currently operates from 13 locations in Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and in 2011 Connecticut. Further expanding in 1993, the SpecAir Gases and Technologies division was established. The SpecAir gas manufacturing laboratory is located in Auburn, Maine with full specialty gas capabilities. SpecAir later introduced the EnviroCyl line of environmentally friendly refillable products, leading the industry in replacing disposable calibration gas cylinders with refillables. 

Maine Oxy expansions include a new stateoftheart acetylene production facility and the expansion of our welder rental and services division, now renting MIG, TIG, Stick, plasma and portable gas and diesel welder generators.

Throughout its history, the company has always had the reputation as a market leader in offering the most current technology and competitive prices, continually exceeding customer expectations. 

Maine Oxy is proud to be a leader in welding, industrial gases and specialty gases. The company's continued success and continued growth is attributed to its employees who believe in earning their customers' business. At Maine Oxy, customers are our reason for being.
