GCE is the leading provider of specialty gas solutions, developing and manufacturing of all types of equipment for pressure and flow control of high-pressure gasses across various industries. ESAB Corporation acquired GCE in 2018 to set the foundation for a new growth platform with a strong global footprint.

With extensive experience in the handling of high-pressure gasses, GCE’s origins go back to the beginning of the twentieth century when oxy-acetylene cutting and welding methods were invented. Today’s product portfolio fits a large variety of applications for industrial, medical, life sciences, and specialty gas controls.

Innovation spotlight.

Zen-O™ portable oxygen concentrator.

In 2015, GCE saw an increasing demand for portable oxygen concentrators designed to enable patients with respiratory disorders, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), better manage their oxygen therapy within and outside their homes. Zen-O is the best-in-class portable oxygen concentrator with pulse and continuous oxygen delivery modes for active patients requiring oxygen therapy. The practical and robust design offers greater operational efficiency and low-cost ownership for home oxygen providers, vastly improving quality of life for patients.

A world of gas control starts here.

Given the rise of medical oxygen infrastructure – driven by the COVID-19 pandemic and the realization of a need for a much more robust infrastructure – GCE is putting the focus back on capacity and meeting peak demand to develop innovative solutions. With the backing of ESAB Corporation, GCE is tackling these challenges head-on by not only enabling development of innovative products and solutions, but relentlessly looking for ways to drive continuous improvement and deliver additional value to customers, healthcare providers, and shareholders.
