Asset Optimization


Guarding against outages that can impact your brand isn’t enough.

With so much riding on production schedules, why not safeguard your business while also optimizing the facilities in which you’ve invested? Controlling what you can allows you to get your existing infrastructure running at full capacity while helping you quickly and efficiently add extensions or whole new facilities. Wondering if it’s possible to maximize profits and keep customers happy? With an efficient, seamless and innovative supply-chain partner, the answer is yes.

 

Streamline and standardize

We are not a traditional supplier. We are a strategic partner that can help you innovate and avoid the issues associated with an inefficient and ineffective supply chain. Besides the benefits of vendor consolidation as we address all of your gas, welding and safety needs, we provide expertise and consulting to streamline your processes. That means the right products for the right job with innovative solutions like stocked, mobile warehouses (conex units) delivered right to your job site and managed by Airgas personnel. You can also choose other delivery mode offerings to fit your needs. The result? Repair and maintenance times are shorter, and improvements to existing infrastructure happen faster.

 

Innovate without interruptions

To help limit downtime, stay on schedule and control costs, we keep your supply chain moving quickly and efficiently with our solutions for maintenance, repair, operations and turnaround services. We not only help keep you running, we free you up to calibrate and optimize your assets. We continuously look for further ways to add innovative efficiencies to your supply chain.

As the leading supplier of welding and cutting gases, equipment and supplies, EPA protocols, calibration standards and more, we combine market leverage with our more than 1,100 nationwide locations to offer an efficient, all-in-one supply chain that consistently delivers. And we offer a multi-tiered approach to safety, including Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) programs that oversee equipment repair and maintenance. By offering on-site pre-turnaround planning and turnaround monitoring, we help you improve safety while diminishing downtime.

 

Many tools for single-source efficiency:

  • Airgas OUTLOOK® Managed Services whips your supply chain into shape via a smart, total approach that includes site survey and assessment, transition management, and entry-level or on-site total gas management.
  • Airgas Inventory Management (AIM™): An online inventory management system we use to develop a Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) solution, it helps you avoid excessive usage and saves time while adding ease to your process via shelf-life tracking and email notification. 
  • Airgas eBusiness Services: Whether you have eProcurement software or an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system, we give you greater flexibility managing your supply chain. Our end-to-end eProcurement solution maximizes workflow efficiency.
  • Varied delivery modes: Our diverse gases delivery system includes cylinders, liquid cylinders, MicroBulk, tube trailers, tank trailers, on-site bulk tanks and gas production plant (ASU) management.

A more efficient supply chain can indeed have a significant impact on asset management. We’ll get you the right tools and equipment quickly and efficiently every time, while offering planning expertise and oversight that can help keep your process, and your business, running smoothly and free of waste. We’ll free you up for further industry progress as you fully optimize your existing plants and infrastructure.
