Central McGowan makes three acquisitions in 2021

Central McGowan, a supplier of gases and equipment for the manufacturing, welding and medical industries in the upper Midwest, and a Fanuc- and Lincoln-authorized integrator, completed the acquisition of Preferred Welder Sales, Mankato, Minn., bringing its acquisition roster for 2021 to three. The company acquired Metro Welding Supply, Minneapolis, in April, and Fessler Carbonic Gas, Des Moines, Iowa, in March. All three companies were independently operated businesses with owners seeking to retire and wanting a way to continue what they each started. Next year, Central McGowan will celebrate 75 years in business.
