To be equipped with CNAS laboratories, cylinder inspection facilities and other necessary equipment, when completed the production base will be able to produce high purity gases, ultra-high purity (UHP) gases, standard gases, electronic grade mixture gases, and cryogenic distilled high purity chemicals.

It will also become the largest production base of standard gases in China and is expected to generate an annual revenue of RMB 250m (approx. $38.25m).
