The North American, ‘big three’ industrial gas corporations have all announced intentions to speak at the forthcoming Jeffries Global Industrial and A&D Conference in New York.

Perhaps the most key companies in terms of industrial gases in North America, Air Products, Praxair and Airgas are to gather at this year’s event taking place between 9th and 11th August.

Andrew R Cichocki, Senior Vice President of Distribution Operations and Business Process Improvement at Airgas is scheduled to offer a presentation at 10 a.m. EDT. No details concerning his presentation topic are available at the current time, but a live webcast will be available on the company’s website.

At the slightly later time of 11.00 a.m. EDT, Praxair’s Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, James S Sawyer, will take to the stage. Praxair has promised that Sawyer will discuss in-house growth strategies and business outlook. An audio webcast and presentation will be available on Praxair’s web site, with a replay after the event.

Supporting the last of the industrial gas speaker slots, John McGlade, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer for Air Products, will take to the stage and offer his take on Air Products’ growth opportunities. For those unable to attend the event, presentation slides will be available on Air Products’ investor relations web site.
