Plainville Fill Plant and Fully Stocked Retail Store
In 1998, Middlesex Gases & Technologies decided to expand its operation by adding a second fill plant in Plainville, Massachusetts. Located right off Route 495 and Route 1 (exit 14a), this location was selected to support our southern Massachusetts and Rhode Island customers. The Plainville plant has the capabilities of supplying gaseous and liquid oxygen, nitrogen and argon, along with propane, acetylene and propylene. Along with the fill plant, Middlesex has a fully stock showroom for all your welding needs. With sustained growth over the years, Middlesex decided in 2014 to expand the plant with an additional 4,000 SF of storage area. Along with the expansion, Middlesex also added the filling of carbon dioxide and mixed gases as well.
The fully stocked welding supply retail store is managed by Delmar Lopes who has over 10 years of distribution experience. Delmar has been with the company for 4 years as a truck driver and is now assisting in the store and with inside sales. He has a great attitude and is very motivated in learning all of the aspects related to our welding side of the business. This also gives Middlesex Gases a great advantage to have a CDL driver inside who can make emergency deliveries when needed. Bringing Delmar inside has definitely impacted our day to day operations in a positive way.
