O.E. Meyer expands, maintains values

Do the right thing. This mantra has been a guiding principal for O.E. Meyer, a Sandusky-based business whose success dates back to 1918, when the Meyer family first unveiled it as a welding supply shop.

Today, the company is split into two divisions: industrial, overseen by Craig Wood, and health care, run by David Belden. The industrial division offers welding products, although it has diversified into offering industrial gases such as oxygen, nitrogen, argon, propane and more.

The heath care division provides home medical equipment and hospital products and services.

At the head of it all: CEO Rodney Belden.  

Said Wood: “In the big picture of things, we ask, ‘Is that the right thing to do?’”

Principle not principal. It's not a school.

Boring, but right.

Is it possible for the SR to encourage readers to notify them of errors through some other means than in the comments? It's really off topic.

Growing in spite of!

Oh, OK. I had wondered how these companies got the money to buy their products.

Second Opinion

"they didn't do that!" (Obama speech concerning anyone who became successful)

"Like so many others, in so many countries who started out to "spread the wealth", Barack Obama has ended up spreading poverty". Thomas Sowell (black commentator with to many honors to list.)


You guys always trot out someone black that opposes the President as if that really means something. It DOESN'T! Has your wealth been taken and spread? I didn't think so!

Second Opinion

Moderators have removed this comment because it contained Personal attacks (including: name calling, presumption of guilt or guilt by association, insensitivity, or picking fights).


Sounds like you went for the race card quoting an "intelligent black". Tell us what you would have done given the state of YOUR country at that time! What did those two wars cost? How about that Medicare Part D? You weren't worried about spending then now were you? Who was it that said deficits don't matter? It wasn't Sowell! I think you need a second opinion on your post! I take it the answer is "NO" on the wealth question. You CONS are really something!

Second Opinion

Hey deertracker. Why not tweet a message to Stacy Dash, you would fit right in!



I have nothing bad to say about O.E. Meyer. I have worked in the fabrication and welding field for over 30 years and they have always met the demands at any and all the companies I have worked for. Very good on consulting services and repair as well. They are unmatched, locally. ALWAYS, Johnny On The Spot in case of emergency "shutdown" type situations. I commend them and their endeavor to supply our local region with the services they offer.
