Air Products’ first cryogenic nitrogen plant in the Bayan Lepas Free Industrial Zone, Penang, Northern Malaysia, is now operational.

Sharing the news yesterday (10th Feb), the industrial gas giant said the new facility will help meet customer demands from electrical and electronics (E&E), as well as other manufacturing industries.

The Bayan Lepas Free Industrial Zone is one of Malaysia’s most vital economic powerhouses and is a high-tech industrial zone, home to many multinational E&E companies.

“Our latest investment puts us in an even stronger position in this important industrial zone as well as Penang to support the thriving E&E industry, which is a key growth driver of Malaysia’s industrial development,” said Alex Tan, President of Air Products Southeast Asia.

“We strive to grow with our customers along their digitalisation and innovation journey by providing our safe, reliable and efficient solutions and excellent service.”

Air Products already has existing infrastructure in Northern Malaysia. In Penang, its two advanced air separation units in the Prai Industrial Park, together with an extensive pipeline network that expands into the Bukit Minyak Industrial Park and the Batu Kawan Industrial Park, provide a strong and highly reliable gases supply to its customers.
