Air Liquide Advanced Materials Inc., industry leader in specialty and advanced chemicals for the global electronics industry, inaugurated a new speciality chemical production facility in Upper Mount Bethel, Pennsylvania, on the 19th October, 2018.
Air Liquide held a ribbon cutting ceremony for the grand opening of its new advanced facility in the presence of local officials and members of the community.
Featuring multiple manufacturing suites and updated infrastructure, the new site offers next generation specialty chemical operations that complement its global manufacturing base. Air Liquide worked closely with the Governor of Pennsylvania’s Action Team to reinforce its commitment to the region and bring this project to fruition.
Paul Burlingame, President & CEO, Air Liquide Advanced Materials Inc. commented, “Air Liquide Advanced Materials is experiencing strong global growth, and the inauguration of the second state-of-the-art Advanced Materials Centre in Upper Mount Bethel, Pennsylvania further enhances our ability to serve customers with innovative products and technologies. This facility comes to life thanks to the men and women of ALAM focused on safety, quality and our customers, along with the strong support of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Lehigh Valley Economic Development Corporation and the local Upper Mount Bethel community.”
Today, Air Liquide also announced its third quarter financials with group revenue rising a solid 6% to €5.3m. The electronics revenue climbed 8.5%, mainly driven in Asia by the start-up of Carrier Gases units and the strong demand for new molecules, and by exceptionally high Equipment & Installations sales.
