The Story behind our footprint
EWN&S Enterprises (Pty) Ltd has been a supplier of industrial gases, LPG, welding equipment, machinery
and safety PPE from our Springs and Nigel branches for over 40 years.
EWN&S Enterprises was started in Nigel by Mike Glutz in 1976, who ran the business together with the
assistance of his brother Derek Glutz. Alan, Mike's son joined his father some 20 years ago, and expanded
the business with the acquisition of BEW Engineering Supplies in Springs. BEW was changed to EWN&S
Springs and the business grew rapidly. EWN&S became the major supplier of industrial gas and welding
supplies to the Springs and Nigel markets.
With the retirement of Mike Glutz, his son Alan was joined by Gavin Bryson (former Air Product employee
who worked there for over 23 years) in January 2011. Together they bought the company from Mike Glutz
and reaffirm their commitment to servicing their customer's with gas and all their welding requirements in
the Gauteng region.
In February 2012, EWN&S expanded their footprint by purchasing Seibod Gas in Sasolburg to service the
customers in the Vaal Triangle region, and since then the two companies have grown exponentially.
To add to the ever growing business EWN&S started AKG Gas & Welding in Primrose now EWN&S
Germiston, in 2015 this is a 51% black women owned company. AKG Gas & Welding has gained enormous
traction over the past two years.
