The History of Baker's Gas & Welding Supplies - Small Business Saturday 2022

BakersGas History Banner

Baker's Gas & Welding Supplies, Inc. was established in 1936 when Harold and Dodie Baker opened the first welding and gas supply store in downtown Detroit. Over time, Baker’s Gas has continued to expand and grow into industrial supplies and all welding gases. After finding success in the Detroit area, Baker's Gas expanded into additional areas throughout Michigan, Ohio and Indiana.

Baker's Gas currently has 10+ locations and services welding supplies nationally. Diversification and drive to meet customer needs is what has allowed Baker's to expand and grow over the last 86 years. We continue to follow the same business model set back in Detroit from the 1930’s of providing quality supplies and great customer service. Today our stores and warehouses stock more than your average welding supply store. We listen to our customers and understand the value of having what you need when you need it. 

Baker's Gas expanded into eCommerce and online sales in the early 2000's.  The online store bakersgas.com is operated by the same Baker's Gas family. As the online store has grown in size, Baker’s has expanded the team and warehouse. Today our online team is based in Toledo, Ohio! We have a dedicated support team to bring our customers around the world the best service and experience possible.
