        Established in 1940, Superior Gas & Equipment Co., Inc. (SUGECO) is now one of the leading producers and distributors of highly technical gases such as Medical and Technical Oxygen, Compressed Air, Hydrogen, Nitrous Oxide, Carbon Dioxide, Nitrogen and Argon.    Sugeco’s first oxygen plant was put up in 1941 and from 1944-1947, additional two oxygen plants and a portable plant were commissioned.  In 1947 the acetylene plant was also established.  Sugeco also pioneered in the production of Carbon Dioxide in 1947 with the establishment of its Carbon Dioxide plant to supply the needed requirements of Pepsi Cola in its soft drink production.   In the same year, Hydrogen Plant was also put up.  This was replaced in 1983 with a bigger capacity.   In the early 1990’s the company embarked into a modernization program to meet an emerging competitive market.   It was also during this period  that the company went instead into refilling activities to support its gas market.


        Sugeco is backed-up by highly experienced technicians carefully chosen from among the best in the industry to operate its plants.




        Sugeco adheres to the following Mission Statement:


                     “To become the leading producer of compressed gases and commit

                       itself in  providing excellent services geared towards total

                       customer satisfaction.”




        Sugeco is 100% Filipino-owned corporation including its subsidiaries.





       An important milestone in the Company’s history which further strengthened its major role in the gas industry was when it entered into a joint venture with Mr. Antonio and Mrs. Concepcion Lua of Cebu City to establish Superior Gas and Equipment Company of Cebu, Inc. (SUGECO CEBU) in 1957.   It has grown to be a major player in the gas and welding industry in Southern Philippines.   Sugeco Cebu operates four (4) oxygen plants and three (3) acetylene plants situated in three strategic locations.   The plant supports a region-wide distribution network in Mandaue, Danao, Mactan and Minglanilla in Cebu Province; and Tacloban City in Leyte and in Villanueva (Misamis Oriental), Cagayan de Oro, Iligan, Butuan and Surigao in Mindanao.




      As part of its thrust to extend good quality service to its clients, SUGECO put up affiliate companies – Majestic Gas, Inc. as its LPG marketing arm  and Supra Gas Haulers, Inc.  to supply the transport requirements of Sugeco and its subsidiaries within the Luzon area.




         To further strengthen Sugeco’s profitability, it embarked into other lines of business. Hydrotesting hi-pressure tubes has become a big revenue potential for the company in view of the expertise of Sugeco engineers and its equipment facilities which serves as our competitive edge. Sugeco also complements its traditional product lines with the accessories catering hospitals, medical practitioners and private individuals.





       SUGECO boasts of sixty (60) human resources (as of January 1, 2010) comprising  plant, delivery and office personnel including managers and supervisors.
