We are delighted to announce Gulf Cryo will be sponsoring the Conference Dinner on 4 December 2013.

For 60 years, Gulf Cryo Holding K.S.C.C has been manufacturing and supplying industrial, medical and speciality gases to a wide range of industries across the MENA region. The company now consists of 30 production and distribution sites across 11 countries, employs over 1000 staff across the MENA region, with continued expansion and strategic investment plans in the pipeline.  It has come a long way since its formation as the Kuwait Oxygen and Acetylene Company (KOAC) in 1953, which was the first oxygen separation plant in the Arabian Gulf.

Gulf Cryo’s capabilities include a considerable pipeline distribution network, the largest merchant air separation production capacity in the region as well as an extensive network of facilities producing and distributing oxygen, nitrogen, acetylene, carbon dioxide, dry ice, hydrogen, nitrous oxide, food-grade, speciality and medical gases. Gulf Cryo also boasts the largest distribution fleet in the region.

As well its major capital and acquisitions spend, Gulf Cryo has been investing in the construction of a new 200 tpd ASU in Abu Dhabi, completed in August (2013). This will be its largest plant in the UAE and will help to meet demand for fast reliable delivery of industrial gases to the oil and gas, steel and heavy fabrication sectors, among others. The group has also this year secured access to 280 tpd of raw CO₂ under a 20-year contract with EQUATE petrochemical company that, pending construction of a new CO₂ liquefaction plant, will make Gulf Cryo a leading CO₂ supplier in the GCC region by H1 2014.
