“I chose to change over to OSC after just about 20 years at another gas supplier because I wanted to work somewhere that could make quick decisions to take care of the customer. The inventory at OSC is second to none. The teamwork is the best I’ve seen with all employee owners striving to put our best foot forward with any situation.”

Chris Buss, Outside Sales Representative

“After spending over 20 years working for an international competitor serving this industry, I joined OSC. Working for an employee owned company (ESOP) has been very refreshing. My fellow employees are committed to our customers, normally going above our customers’ expectations. This along with internal operations at OSC, has made this one of the best decisions I have made during my years in this industry.”

Todd Norton, Outside Sales Representative

“OSC has a straightforward, down to earth approach to service and growth that is not clouded or lost in the corporate muck that occurs often with other companies. I like the employee owned atmosphere.”

Corey Eddy, Outside Sales Representative

“I enjoy working at OSC because of the family like culture that exists among employees. I also appreciate the ownership mindset that the majority of employees have when taking care of our customers and when making decisions regarding the business.”

Ryan Diekow, President & CEO

“I love love the people!!!! We all work together as a team! Your managers leave you alone and let you do your job! Oxygen Service Company is always doing things for their employees, which is rare. I honestly wish I could have started here 20 years ago!!!”

Victoria Armstrong, Receptionist & Billing Clerk

“After moving here from my hometown of 45 years and leaving my previous place of employment of 15 years, I was not expecting to find a place to work that felt like home. That’s when I found Oxygen Service Company! It’s so refreshing to work for a company who treats their employees like family. Plus, I am now an employee owner and own shares in the company I work for!”

Holly Stein, HR Executive Assistant

“I worked for a corporate competitor for 16 years before coming to Oxygen Service Company. Coming to OSC was a great move for my family and career. I enjoy being an employee/owner now for 18 years at OSC. Oxygen Service is committed to a very high standard of quality and service to our customers. The company culture encourages having fun and working hard towards shared success. I have a lot of pride being part of this great organization and look forward to many years to come.”

Fred Spiess, Outside Sales Representative

“For the first 20+ years I worked for several other companies. I wanted to be a part of an employee owned company when I was hired on at Earl’s Welding Supply. As the story goes, eight months after being hired, Earl’s and Oxygen Service Company merged. Oxygen Service is the best company I have ever had the pleasure of being a part of!”

Mark Schneider, Outside Sales Representative

“OSC is a company that actually lives and operates by their core values. These are not just words on a piece of paper. I think this brings the employees together to provide that all for one, one for all family atmosphere. It is great to see a company practice what it preaches. OSC also has a great team atmosphere that really makes you feel welcomed and appreciated. From the company cookouts to the numerous family activities, it is great to see the smiles of gratitude when recognized for a job well done.”

Tracy McLellan, VP Sales and Marketing

“With over 40 years of industry experience, I have always known about OSC. Making the decision to join their team of experienced people was easy. We all work together to accomplish the same goal – to service our customers and grow the business for our employee owners. The company is dedicated to cultivate and grow their employees, allowing many opportunities to grow within the company.”

Dave Leonhart, Sales Manager

“At OSC we are a team and know how to get things done. If I don’t have an answer I know I can lean on my team to have that answer. Our inventory is second to none and because we are employee owned we can respond much faster than a corporate run company.”

Jay Griffiths, (Former) Outside Sales Representative

“The best part about working at OSC is working with 100% employee owners and their industry leading technical skills!”

Ryan Kriese, Operations Manager

“OSC has the best retirement plan out there!”

Dan Buss, Plant Operator
