US-based industrial gases company Air Products has started operations at its new plant located in the Pukou Economic Development Zone (PKEDZ), Nanjing, China.
The plant supplies high-purity industrial gases, including liquid nitrogen, to merchant customers in and around the Nanjing region.
The facility is intended to support the firm’s international customer base by providing safe, reliable and sustainable gas solutions.
The plant is expected to bolster the firm’s footprint in Nanjing’s integrated circuit (IC) manufacturing, new materials and bio-medicine sectors. The company made its first investment in the facility in July 2016.
The firm also operates three air separation units at the PKEDZ tech park. These units serve the company’s customer base through pipelines and other channels.
