A-Gas International has announced the formation of A-Gas Americas following the merger of sister companies Coolgas, RemTec, CIJSA and A-Gas Performance Chemicals.

A-Gas Americas will operate from the companies’ existing locations within the group in Ohio, Texas, Pennsylvania and Mexico.

The companies’ extensive range of services and products to the refrigerant, performance chemicals, environmental services and fire protection industries will continue to be offered to customers but under one brand.

A-Gas International is a leading supplier of products and services in these markets across the globe and also trades in the UK, South Africa, Australia, South East Asia, and China. The new business in the Americas will give customers greater access to technical expertise, industry knowledge and knowhow within the group.

President of A-Gas US Holdings Ken Logan said, “Customers will continue to talk to the same, friendly and dedicated sales personnel. By bringing the four businesses together into one recognisable brand we will be able to offer customers all the benefits associated with the A-Gas group globally but under one roof. Together we are one family and our values of integrity, professionalism and great customer service will remain unchanged.”

 “Work is already underway to consolidate IT, business and financial systems within the one company and this will be completed soon. We see the establishment of A-Gas Americas as a stepping stone to greater growth in the Americas’ market during the years to come. It is an exciting phase for A-Gas International and we hope it will help turn our Americas’ operation into the largest contributor to group business.”

Coolgas and RemTec are recent acquisitions for A-Gas International, bought by the company in 2012. A-Gas, founded in 1993, has a close relationship with leading manufacturers and suppliers which helps to provide support in research and development. The group continually invests in developing and maintaining facilities of the highest quality and standards. All of its facilities are purpose built, highly sophisticated and engineered to take advantage of the latest technological advances.

Globally, A-Gas International products serve a wide range of markets including the agriculture, automotive, aviation, building services, electronics, food processing, manufacturing, medical, mining and transport industries.

A new website has been created to reflect the changes in the business – making it easier for customers to find key information on the company’s extensive range of products and services.
