Holston Gases was proud to participate in the Touch a Truck event in Franklin, TN. Children of all ages were invited to touch, climb on, and explore all different shapes and sizes of commercial vehicles and equipment at the event. Beau Sandage, Manager of the Holston Gases store in Columbia, TN was quoted as saying, “We love to participate in events like this. This is a fantastic event that feeds children’s natural curiosity about heavy equipment. Holston Gases has a firm commitment to educating the next generation, and events like this just help to keep kids excited about the types of equipment we use.”

One of the largest independent welding and industrial gas suppliers in the southeast United States, Holston Gases was recently invited to attend an open house at Virnig Manufacturing’s new Pikeville, TN facility. In attendance was Tennessee Governor Bill Lee. Governor Lee was impressed with both Virnig’s operation and the number of various products that Holston Gases is supplying to them. This type of partnership is possible because of the depth of product knowledge and breadth of coverage by Holston Gases.

Virnig Manufacturing is a US based manufacturer of skid steer attachments and dump trailers, headquartered in Rice, MN. In the fall of 2021, Virnig expanded, acquiring a facility in Pikeville, TN. Holston Gases Crossville manager Greg Jackson said, “During a meeting with the mayor of Pikeville, Gary Winningham learned that Virnig was opening a new facility in Pikeville. Holston Gases was able to partner with Virnig during the build out of the 60,000+ square foot facility and assist them even before they were ready to produce products. It is this type of partnership that Holston Gases values most.”
