Air Products (Lehigh Valley, Pa.; www.airproducts.com) announced plans to build, own and operate a new air separation unit (ASU) in the Twin Cities area of Minnesota. The new large-scale facility, scheduled to be onstream in early-to-mid-2020, will provide reliable liquid industrial gas options for local customers and distributors in the region.

“Air Products’ goal is to be the safest and best performing industrial gas company in the world, providing excellent service to our customers. This is a prime example of making the necessary investment to provide that reliable and excellent service to our current and future customers,” said Seifi Ghasemi, chairman, president and chief executive officer at
Air Products.

The new large-scale ASU will produce liquid nitrogen, oxygen and argon, allowing Air Products to strengthen and grow its presence in a dynamic geography. “Air Products has supplied customers in Minnesota and the surrounding region with both onsite gases and merchant liquid for decades. This investment shows further commitment to our customers in the Midwest region, will expand our ability to serve the greater area, and will provide reliable product to supply new customers as well,” said Francesco Maione, Air Products vice president, Northern Region, Americas.
