News Release from the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement
SAN DIEGO – One of the largest independent distributors of gases, gas equipment and welding supplies in the Southwest has become the newest employer to join U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) IMAGE program, a voluntary partnership that helps employers maintain a lawful workforce and reduce unauthorized employment and the use of fraudulent identity documents.
WestAir Gases & Equipment, a family-owned business formerly known as San Diego Welders Supply, is the 19th San Diego-area employer to become an IMAGE member. Most of the company’s over 200 employees work at offices in Southern California, including the firm’s headquarters in San Diego. The company also has offices in Texas and Arizona.
