MVE-Chart celebrated 50 years of operations at its New Prague, Minnesota facility this summer, regarded as a cornerstone of Chart’s Distribution & Storage Group (D&S).

Minnesota Valley Engineering (MVE) began as a start-up company in New Prague in 1963 with the aim of building a better LN2 container for the new artificial insemination market.

After three decades of working to expand its lines to include packaged gas, bulk, vacuum insulated pipe (VIP), and mobile gas products, MVE joined forces with Chart in 1999. Since then the Chart D&S Group has stretched across the globe. Chart attributes much of the success of the New Prague operation to its loyal customers and hard-working employees.
