COLUMBUS, Ohio - Worthington Cylinders has announced the addition of a new rapid-order fulfillment warehouse at Gas Innovations in Houston, as part of its CylinDirect Express™ program.

CylinDirect Express employs three warehouses strategically located in Tilbury, Ontario, Montclair, Calif., and now Houston, enabling Worthington Cylinders to ship industrial resale cylinders anywhere in the continental United States and Canada within 24 hours, said the company.

“Our CylinDirect Express program allows customers to receive quality-made products direct from the manufacturer, with lead times measured in hours rather than weeks,” said Wayne Powers, director of industrial products for Worthington Cylinders. “The addition of the Gas Innovations warehouse in Texas allows us to reduce already shortened lead times as well as cut down on excess distribution costs.”

Worthington Cylinders offers a complete line of North American-made high pressure and acetylene resale cylinders in sizes HP-20 cu. ft. through HP-150 cu. ft. plus MC through AC 145 cu. ft.

Worthington Cylinders is a leading global supplier of pressure cylinders. Products include LPG, refrigerant, and industrial gas cylinders, as well as retail product lines. For more information, visit www.worthingtoncylinders.com.
