Why Us

The Red Ball Family

As a family-owned company since 1969, our customers and employees are at the heart of everything we do. As a result, we are flexible, reliable, and quick.
Red Ball Technical Gas Services, a division of Red Ball Oxygen, developed after we experienced service gaps with our vendors in the specialty gas industry. Now, we produce EPA Protocol calibration gases; high quality pure, mixed, and custom blended gases; and hydrocarbons/BTU standards. Our manufacturing facilities in Shreveport, LA (ISO 17025 accredited) and Houston, TX, offer some of the fastest lead times in the industry to companies worldwide.
