Global Gases Zhongshan, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Dubai-based Global Gases Group FZCO, is pleased to announce the opening of its new industrial gases fill plant located in Cuiheng Industrial Park in Zhongshan.

The 10,000 square meter facility is Global Gases’ third gas production facility in China, the others being located in Nanjing and Changsha.

The Zhongshan facility will focus its efforts on supplying helium and other industrial gases to diving contractors, MRI installations, research & development institutes, chemical and pharmaceutical companies located in the Pearl River Delta area of Guangdong Province.  Eventually, Global Gases intends to develop the capability to also supply specialty gas markets from the Zhongshan facility.

Including the new facility in Zhongshan, the Global Gases Group now has a business presence in 21 countries, including eleven helium transfill facilities.  Global Gases continues to expand its network and has plans to complete two additional helium transfills during 2014, including a new facility in Malta which will have its opening ceremony on April 14th.

Deepak Mehta, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of the Global Gases Group stated, “The Zhongshan facility is a key part of our plan to enhance Global Gases’ supply capability in China and key Asian onshore and offshore markets.  With our recent opening in Chennai and upcoming opening in Malta, 2014 is a period of significant investment and rapid expansion for our company.”

While attending the Zhongshan facility’s inauguration ceremony, which was held on the 19th of March, Karen Caldwell, Vice President, Asia for Global Gases commented, “This state of the art facility is a significant milestone for Global Gases expansion in Asia.  It strengthens our position to supply product not only in China, but throughout the region.”
