About Baker's

Dodie (Klemz) and Harold Baker founded Baker's Gas and Welding Supplies in 1936. The core of the business was industrial gases and welding supplies. Our  first location was in downtown Detroit on Michigan Avenue across from the old Detroit Tigers' stadium. Dodie's brother Dale Klemz joined the team in the 1960's, and in 1973, Baker's Gas moved the flagship store to Lincoln Park, Michigan. Even today, our store in Lincoln Park is running strong while serving metro Detroit and the surrounding areas. The Klemz family has expanded and diversified the business over the years. Baker's Gas has been passed down through each generation, and it is still family owned and operated by the same Klemz family. 

Today, Baker's Gas has eight locations in Southeast Michigan and Northwest Ohio to serve you. Baker's Gas is dedicated to providing a superior customer experience to everyone both online and in our brick and mortar shops. Baker’s Gas has knowledgeable staff in our showrooms and over the phone to help you with all of your welding supply needs.

Our Mission Statement:
