"Our commitment to you is simple; we will make ourselves available to you 24 hours every day, 365 days every year and we will respond to your problems and opportunities with urgency. We will be a problem-solving vendor you can rely on."
Alex Kennedy - Chief Executive Officer of Red Ball Oxygen
Founded in Shreveport, LA in 1930, we have grown to serve a four-state area from 24 customer service locations and three fully modernized cylinder filling plants. Our customers find that we have more locally available resources to meet their needs than our multi-national corporate competitors.
Committed to Independence
Red Ball Oxygen has been under the continuous ownership of the Kennedy family since 1969. We are currently in our third generation as a family-owned account. In this unprecedented environment of rapid industry consolidation, you can rest assured, our people and our unique customer relationships are not for sale.
We have grown by re-investing earnings, not by accruing debt. Our cash-positive position ensures that we will be here to serve you for the long-term, through both good and bad economic conditions. We have the financial strength to make significant investments in our customer partnerships.
Open Books, Profit Sharing Account
All of us are in it together. Every employee is a stakeholder, and we all share in the profits of our account. Maybe this is why our employees are willing to go the extra mile, and to respond to customer requirements with such urgency.
