As it seeks to meet growing demand in the Texas and Oklahoma industrial gas markets, Air Liquide Industrial US has commissioned a new nitrogen liquefier at its ASU in Cleburne, Texas.
The company also plans to increase its workforce in Cleburne by one-third over a two-year period, hiring as many as 21 permanent employees, including production technicians and truck drivers.
Beginning commercial production at the tail-end of 2012, the new liquefier is the second of two now in operation at the Cleburne facility. The increased capacity in the region will enable Air Liquide to increase its supply of liquid nitrogen to customers in a range of industries and applications.
Mark Lostak, president of Air Liquide Industrial US, enthused, “We are very pleased to announce the start-up of our new nitrogen liquefier in Cleburne.”
“This facility expansion enables us to meet the growing demands of the industrial gas market in this region, while also supporting job creation and economic growth in the City of Cleburne and Johnson County.”
