For the first time in its history, Air Products South Africa has appointed a woman as Regional Sales Manager of its Western Cape, tasked with leading the region’s performance to new heights.

Nita Müller has held a career in the industrial gas industry for the past 21 years, most recently serving as the South African unit’s Facility Supervisor over a 16-year period, and has set a number of benchmarks for the Tier One player during her occupation.

The industrial gas company credits Müller for amassing no less than 11 NOSCAR’s over the years, recognising efforts in health, safety and environmental management, as well as Müller personally receiving an individual award for occupational risk management at NOSHCON in 2013.

She enthused about her new post and stated, “I am accepting this new challenge with renewed commitment and enthusiasm – placing customers at the forefront and focusing on service delivery and growth.”

“Air Products has provided me with numerous opportunities over the years to make an impact. I trust that my industry, technical and commercial knowledge, coupled with input from my leadership team, will enable me to manage the Western Cape region with great success.”

The South African division of the Tier One player has been at the forefront of promoting women’s careers in what is generally perceived as a male dominated industry.

The Western Cape forms part of Air Products South Africa’s national operations and supports different industries in the region as a leader in industrial gas manufacturing.
