Global Gases Group, one of the leading independent suppliers of gases to the offshore and medical markets, has opened a new fill plant in Johor Bahru, Malaysia, adding to its fast-growing network of helium and offshore gases facilities.

As a result of combining its former facilities in Singapore and Malaysia, the new factory is now the largest offshore gases packaging plant by capacity in Asia, according to the company.

Group Managing Director and CEO Deepak Mehta reinforced, “This new plant helps enhance Global Gases as the premier supplier of helium and offshore gases in this important region – its opening is a great way to start celebrating our 15th year of operations in 2017.”

“I’m very proud of this new facility and of my team’s hard work in ensuring we opened a world class facility to service very important South East Asia waters,” he continued.

In terms of future outlook, Mehta commented, “After consolidation through 2015 and 2016, we are looking forward to recommencing our further worldwide expansion with focused investments in 2017-2018 to serve our customers better.”
