Smart Partnering


If you’re not providing a unified supply-chain solution, you could be introducing unexpected proficiency gaps.

When it comes to presenting yourself as having access to a variety of viable supply-chain solutions, the more the better, the thinking goes.

But, what if you could find the same multi-faceted performance in one key supply partner? Imagine the advantages of having multiple supply-chain solutions embedded in one source.

 

Extend the benefits of dealing with a single-source leader

We offer a range of products, services and expertise for all things gases, welding and safety that spans multiple industries, including:

  • Construction
  • Manufacturing and Metal Fabrication
  • Energy and Chemicals
  • Food, Beverage and Retail
  • Healthcare and Life Sciences
  • Primary Materials
  • Aerospace and Defense
  • Government and Municipalities

Keep supply and service consistent

Partnering with Airgas, an Air Liquide company, helps your clients avoid the many pitfalls that can arise when using a diversified supply chain. An accumulation of costly delays and redundancies is avoided, along with filling out the same paperwork and wasting time in other areas.

Our continuity frees you up to work more efficiently with your clients, who also benefit from all the offerings that set us apart. They won’t be wondering if they could do better by choosing to go with multiple suppliers because no one can come close to our level of quality or the diversity of our product line and supply modes.

We offer products as diverse as the industries we serve and have a breadth of offerings to meet even the most specialized gas product needs. As the premier packaged gas leader in the U.S.—including industrial, medical and specialty—we stand alone:

  • The leading U.S. supplier of liquid carbon dioxide and dry ice, serving a broad customer base and multiple applications
  • The largest U.S. producer of nitrous oxide, serving industrial customers and government agencies
  • A leading U.S. provider of refrigerants, ammonia and process chemicals

In addition to hard-to-find specialty products such as nitrous oxide, beverage-quality carbon dioxide and NF nitrogen, our bulk gas offerings include:

  • Argon
  • Carbon dioxide
  • Helium
  • Oxygen
  • Hydrogen
  • Nitrogen
  • Nitrous oxide
  • Propane
  • Propylene
  • Modified atmosphere packaging (MAP)

Our supply-mode options ensure that any of our products fits like a glove with your clients in terms of day-to-day operational, space and equipment demands. We provide an array of options including delivery in tank or tube trailers, onsite storage of bulk or MicroBulk gas, and gas production plant (ASU) management.
