Taylor-Wharton International, LLC (TWI) has announced the creation of a new liquefied natural gas (LNG) business unit and ‘world-class management team’.

The news comes in response to the global demand for LNG, and will see the new business unit form part of the Taylor-Wharton Cryogenics, LLC subsidiary.

It takes TW Cryogenics to three global business units, namely LNG, Industrial and CryoScience.

The LNG division will be focused on the manufacture and supply of specialized cryogenic equipment for LNG bulk storage, transport and end-user applications.

David Barr, recently hired as the new LNG vice-president and general manager, will lead the company’s efforts to grow its LNG business.

He commented, “Taylor-Wharton Cryogenics is perfectly positioned to be a world-leading LNG equipment supplier. We have global manufacturing capability, brilliant engineers and a huge demand from the LNG industry for another global supplier.”

“We are currently focused on building the finest LNG management team possible to lead the development of a wide range of LNG products designed around the needs of the customer.”
