One of Asia’s leading industrial and medical gas companies, AirPower Technologies (APT) has become a member of the Asia Industrial Gases Association (AIGA), an organisation that aims to promote safety, health, environmental awareness and security for industrial gases.

Announced today, 4th August, APT – which is part of the Yingde-Baosteel Gas-NovaAir Group – became a Category-2 member of AIGA effective from July 2022.  

As part of the appointment, Steven Fang, CEO at APT has also been inducted into the AIGA Board with immediate effect.  

Commenting on his new membership, Fang said, “I am honoured and happy to join the AIGA Board representing APT and treasure the same.”  

“I am eagerly looking forward to contributing to the board and activities of AIGA.”  

Headquartered in Shanghai, the company boasts US$3.3 billion in group annual sales achieved through its supply of industrial and medical gases across the continent, with a heavy presence in China, India, and Singapore.
