Absolute Air, LLC broke ground in Faribault, about 50 miles south of Minneapolis on September 19, executing on their announced plans to build a merchant air separation plant (ASP) in the Minneapolis metropolitan area to serve its partners and customers. The plant is expected to be producing gases by early 2021.

Speaking at the groundbreaking ceremony were the President and the Chairman of Absolute Air, Ned Pontious and Brad Peterson. Peterson is also owner of Mississippi Welders Supply (MWS), one of the project partners and the current Gases and Welding Distributors Association (GAWDA) President. In attendance for the groundbreaking celebration were the companies that are under contract to design, engineer, and build the facility and plant, including ISG Engineering, Bauer Design Build LLC, plant builder AMCS, and Chart Energy & Chemicals, Inc. Steele-Waseca and Great River Energy, the power companies that will provide reliable electric power to the plant, were also in attendance.

Others attending that were involved in bringing this project to fruition included Bruce Best, owner, Aspen Run Consulting for financial modeling, and Bremer Bank for financing. The Mayor of Faribault, Kevin Voracek, and city administrative officials that assisted Absolute Air in the planning process were also in the audience, with the mayor giving brief remarks before the shovels hit the dirt. Supportive industry peers and friends Ray Borzio, managing partner at Global Calibration Gases and Ray Dillard, VP ARC3 Gases Gas Operations and chairs the steering PurityPlus® committee, were also there to cheer on the Absolute Air team.
