Cryostar USA has celebrated an important milestone in recent weeks, with the grand opening of its new Houston, Texas facility.

Officially opened on 30th October, the new business premises allow the company to expand its service capabilities in North America.

It also complements Cryostar’s sales office and service workshop in Pennsylvania and engineering, production and service facilities in California.

More than 30 customers such as ACT, Air Liquide, Air Products, Genox, InoxCVA, Natural Chem, Praxair, Weldcoa, and Wesmor were present at the opening ceremony event, welcomed by a Cryostar team including Executive Director of Operations Didier Walch, Business Manager for North America Mark Sutton, Commercial Manager Philippe Fauvel, and Sean Hardy, Sales Manager North America Distribution.

Sutton expressed his satisfaction in opening a new facility to better respond to customer’s needs in this area.

Guests had the opportunity to see a presentation of Cryostar’s products and markets, and a factory tour ending with a Texas BBQ lunch. Thanks to Genox, visitors also had the opportunity to see a GNL trailer equipped with a Cryostar pump.

The new building – 8,000 sq ft. in size and boasting a number of offices and conference room – includes an oxygen clean room and a five tonne crane, which will facilitate the assembly and servicing of large expanders and pumps installed in the Gulf region near the Houston facility. An inventory of spare parts and exchange pumps is also available to support customer needs.
