OUR HISTORY

FOUNDED IN WASHOUGAL, WASHINGTON

US Cryogenics, Inc. was founded more than 20 years ago by Mark Hougan, with a sole purpose to fill the technical void in the repair and maintenance of sophisticated cryogenic systems – specifically solving complex gas distribution problems for large independent industrial gas suppliers. The teams of technicians for these suppliers often lacked the depth of experience necessary to solve specialized industrial gas piping and storage problems. Armed with his experience of two decades in the industrial gas industry, Mark undertook the charge of providing specialized services in the maintenance, repair, and troubleshooting of problems within cryogenic gas and liquid systems to assist customers with the storage, delivery, and use of industrial gases and liquids.

Throughout these last few decades, more businesses have placed sophisticated plasma cutters and lasers into their operations and our firm has continued to expand to meet those complex needs, whether it’s a new installation or the upgrade or repair of your current system. Our field technicians are extremely capable and skilled in handling piping and distribution problems that may crop up during the installation of a new tank and piping to the production bays.
