Andy Ellen began his career at Arcet as a teenager valving cylinders. Summers and holidays during high school and college were spent learning various jobs at Arcet. After graduating from college in 1982, he spent a couple of years in public accounting before eventually becoming a full-time employee of Arcet in the summer of 1984.
Andy has had an amazing career. Some of his favorite memories were having Lunch with my Dad most workdays up until his death in 2008. He highlights the merger of Arcet and Machine & Welding in 2013 to create Arc3 Gases as the highest point of his journey here. He plans to follow the example already set by Emmett Aldredge Jr, Parker Dillard, and Ray Dillard and retire from day-to-day work but remain active as an owner and director of Arc3 Gases.
Andy pictured with his mother said, "Arc3 Gases is in my blood and that won't change with my retirement. I know that when I leave, Arc3's future will be in good hands. The employees of Arc3 are, quite simply, the best in the industry. Thanks to all of you for making Arc3 Gases a wonderful place to work."
