“We are very pleased with Tech Air’s expansion through the acquisition of such high-quality business,” said CEO Myles Dempsey Jr. “Speed has a well-established reputation and strategic value in the attractive Galveston-Houston area, and we look forward to building on this acquisition in the region. Colorado Distributing builds upon our growth strategy in that state and strengthens our service offerings. The acquisition of Leeper Brothers greatly enhances our position in Southern California, and we are excited to have added medical gas business to our business mix. We welcome these teams to Tech Air, and we look forward to supporting their continued success.”
