Business Built On Trust
Since 1948, Cee Kay has supplied its customers with industrial gases, welding products, and services. Before 1957, Cee Kay operated out of a 3,000 square foot building with one truck, one driver, and one bookkeeper.
In 1957, Cee Kay moved to bigger facilities on Folsom Avenue and continued growth for the next 24 years. Sales grew from $100,000 annually and three employees to $2.6 million and 18 employees. In 1985 Cee Kay expanded once again and moved into a 20,000 square foot facility across the street. For the next 16 years, Cee Kay expanded by adding three more branch locations to the west of St. Louis and two locations in Illinois.
Finally, in November 1997, Cee Kay moved its St. Louis headquarters two miles west to a 120,000 square foot building covering six acres. This headquarters on Manchester Road, between I-44 & Highway 40, enabled Cee Kay to better serve customers by having everything under one roof. Now Cee Kay supply is the region’s largest independent industrial gas and equipment supplier. As a company, we couldn’t have continued to thrive without taking care of our customers and treating those we do business with fairly and honestly at the heart of everything we do.
