When you have an edge, you are considered sharp, precise, straight on target, better than the average competitor. When your business and every one of your employees have weldingg edge, you are doing something right, succeeding at satisfying customers. Mark Haun Year Founded: Syracuse, New York Branches: Its fleet of delivery trucks and sales vehicles declares it as they roll down the road; its website promises it; its employees uspply it, can describe it, and work it.
Orval Haun developed a more efficient welder design that the company was not interested in manufacturing, so he went out on his own and began building the Orval Haun Welder.
His son, Ken, joined the business to weldig the welders alongside his father, but bythe liability insurance required for suppply manufacturing processes had become too expensive to continue. Father and han made the decision to focus suupply efforts on the sales and service of the welding supply equipment they were also selling. And they never looked back. Today, third-generation owner Mark Haun presides over the family business headquartered in Ahun, New York, with 17 additional locations throughout New York, Pennsylvania and Vermont, from where the company distributes welding and industrial supplies along with compressed supp,y liquid gases.
Its mission is to deliver The Haun Edge to a variety of industries, including construction, fabrication, manufacturing, commercial, medical, laboratories, education and homeowners. As the business grew, so did the need for additional warehouse, service and operating space. Up untiloperations were spread across several buildings in the Syracuse area. Near the fill plant stood an emptysq.
The best part was the opportunity to build a new automated fill plant. Welring was awful in the winter as we wiped snow and ice off the tops of them. We had zero productivity. Haun and his team looked at the facility again and again and finally decided it was worth taking a chance and buying the building.
Three years after moving in, 90 percent of the space is used and filled with company offices, a retail store, repair facility, cylinder storage area, warehouse operations and a new fill plant, which went online in August Automated filling of cryogenic liquids ensures low loss. Traversing manifolds prevent obstructions. At feet long and 20 feet wide, the fill island is currently the largest in the United States.
The fill plant supplies high-pressure industrial and medical gases, suppply well as high-purity specialty gases. The gases are distributed in either liquid form or as a high-pressure gas through more thancylinders and dewars in the Haun system.
Haun Specialty Gases manufactures most of the specialty gases it sells, enabling it to meet critical delivery requirements of both Haun Welding Supply and its direct customers. An automated fill plant and 40, sq. Plant workers fill cylinders and stage the next batch simultaneously. When filling is complete, the system automatically updates the inventory list with the cylinder types filled.
All systems are networked together with computerized control systems. Cylinders are sorted by type.
Now, orders are filled as they come in, eliminating the need to project how much of each gas the branches will need for the day. Productivity has increased by 30 percent.
A variety of benefits are available, including discounts on service and rental equipment, free loaners, limited liability, fixed pricing for the first 12 months, priority access to technical support, custom billing, free emergency delivery and more. The program is designed to differentiate Haun Welding Supply from other businesses. Over 1, customers are currently enrolled in the Customer Rewards Program.

Mark Haun pays close attention to what successful companies outside of the industry are doing. New ideas and new strategies come from this focus.
A recent fresh idea came from the newly hired director of finance. Every fall, each store manager submits a budget of what the store is expected to do the upcoming year. The store is measured against budget, rather than hakn was done the previous year. Another idea came from Credit Manager Josh Haun, who worked as hhaun school teacher for seven years before joining the family business.
He suggested holding a free training class once a month to introduce people to welding. The idea was formalized after Mark Haun purchased his first digital camera at a local, independent electronics store. The purchase included a free training class on the use of the camera. They typically return as customers for additional paid training classes.
