Tom Dyal, Founder of Cryo Weld Corporation
Tom Dyal, founder of Cryo Weld Corporation, started out working for Cryo Dyne Corporation, a family business owned by his father and two partners as a teenager in 1970.
When Cryo Dyne Corporation was sold in the early 1990s to US Airgas, the feeling of a global company didn’t suit Tom, so he set out to start his own welding supply distributorship.
Cryo Weld Corporation Founded in 1993
In 1993, Cryo Weld Corporation was founded in Poughkeepsie, NY by Tom with the support of BOC Gases.
Tom wanted to create a family-owned welding supply business like the one he grew up in that offered the best customer service in the industry. He and his wife Debbie worked long days making customer deliveries, running the store, and calling on potential accounts. Tom and Debbie were proud to grow Cryo Weld Corporation into a true family business with the addition of his daughter, Michelle in 1997, his son, Tommy in 2001, and his son-in-law, Nick Centorani in 2009.
Cryo Weld expanded to two locations with the addition of a full-service branch in Lake Katrine, NY in 1998.
In 2016 we had the opportunity to purchase the Poughkeepsie building back from Airgas where Tom’s father started his business over 50 years ago. The space was gutted, rebuilt with a modernized industrial look, and moved in 2017.
The one delivery truck that Tom started with is now a fleet, operated throughout the entire Hudson Valley and Western Connecticut by knowledgeable and professional staff with the same dedication to customer service on which the company was founded.
The Next Generation
With Tom’s extensive industry knowledge, he taught Michelle and Nick the day to day operations of the business and the importance of Cryo Weld’s Mission. In 2017 Tom and Debbie retired passing down the family business to the next generation.
The Cryo Weld Mission
Our mission has always been to service and treat every customer as if they were our most important customer; they are not just numbers in a computer, but people that we’ve created relationships within our community over a lifetime.
We pride ourselves in being able to meet the needs of both small and large industries while still providing the personal attention that each customer deserves. Over the last 25 years, we’ve continued to expand, because Cryo Weld has kept to its core mission of quality customer service above all.
