Taiyo Nippon Sanso Corporation (TNSC), together with Okamoto Industry Co. Ltd. And Fukko Sanso Co. Ltd, has recently announced that construction of its joint venture Kure Gas Centre, located in Hiroshima Prefecture, has been completed.

In addition to the supply of industrial oxygen, nitrogen, argon, carbon dioxide and other gas mixtures to customers in the Kure district, the new filling station will also fill oxygen cylinders for medical use and will offer a fully comprehensive filling service, realising greater efficiency and improved customer satisfaction.

Up until now, TNSC sales agents Okamoto Industry and Fukko Sanso have independently operated their own gas filling stations in the Kure district. As these stations have become superannuated however, the 3 companies decided upon joint investment in the new company project to rationalise and simultaneously undertake a renewal of operations through a process of integration.

The Kure Gas Centre’s filling station has been built on the grounds of the Fukko Sanso filling station.
