The Red Ball Technical Gas Services Family
As a division of a family-owned company, our customers and employees are at the heart of everything we do at Red Ball Technical Gas Services. As a result, we are flexible, reliable, and quick.
Red Ball Technical Gas Services, a division of Red Ball Oxygen, developed in 2003 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 and Houston, TX, (both ISO 17025 accredited) offer some of the fastest lead times in the industry to companies worldwide.
We Are Changing the Industry
In 2003, our TGS Shreveport branch opened for business. Within that year, we began producing EPA Protocol calibration gases, BTU Natural Gas Standards, and Primary and Certified Standards. We also developed an advanced cylinder telemetry system to track real-time gas usage. This marked the start of our Proactive Cylinder Management system.
In 2006, we won the TXU Energy bid and challenged the industry standard with our Proactive Cylinder Management system. This process became the catalyst for a re-engineered calibration gas supply chain and reduced approximately 58% in excess inventory for TXU Energy.
In 2008, we earned our ISO 17025 accreditation for our Shreveport-based manufacturing facility and passed our first EPA blind audit. Since then, we have consistently performed well in these audits.
In 2012, the division expanded its fill capabilities and warehouse footprint due to exponential growth. We also deployed our Gas Management System, an automated sample and analysis system used to certify gases.
In 2016, we acquired TGS Houston (formerly ISGAS), to increase our capabilities within the hydrocarbon market (refining, petrochemical, and natural gas). This addition provided us with a solution for any and every market. Currently, we are working on an ISO 17025 accreditation for this site and expect to be approved by the beginning of 2021.
In 2017, our team developed a customer-driven service called Lightning Certs. This service instantly emails certificates of analysis to customers.
In 2020, we developed a product line of transportable calibration gases called Lightning Cal™, which are manufactured out of TGS Shreveport and TGS Houston. These eco-friendly calibration gas cylinders offer high-quality gas mixtures in small, portable cylinders.
