Aeriform is an independent distributor with 29 locations in Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Kansas. The acquired business employs about 240 people and has annual sales of about $65 million, the Radnor, Pa.-based company said.

"Airgas and Aeriform people have worked to make this transition a smooth one for customers and employees," the company said.

We also look forward to welcoming Aeriform customers, and to offering our new customers a broader product range to meet their gases, welding and safety product needs."
