MATHESON has revealed plans to build a second state-of-the-art large capacity Air Separation Unit, (ASU), in the Los Angeles, California area.
“The new ASU is in line with MATHESON’s ongoing strategy of expansion in high growth markets and the vertical integration of our merchant bulk liquid and cylinder gas distribution capabilities to include our recent acquisition of Sims Welding,” stated Scott Kallman, President & CEO. “The goal of the strategy is to meet the total gas and equipment needs of our Customers safely, reliably, and cost-effectively. The added capacity is intended to meet the growth in the Los Angeles and San Diego areas over the upcoming 5-7 years.”
“This ASU will produce liquid nitrogen, liquid oxygen and liquid argon, all used to supply multiple markets, including aerospace, electronics, environmental, fabrication, food, medical and metals applications. The investment will allow MATHESON to better support our current Customers by adding to our existing Southwest network of ASUs in California, Arizona, and New Mexico,” explained Nigel McMullen, Senior Vice President Bulk Gas Business. “The plant is expected to be on stream, producing high-purity merchant product, in 2017.”
MATHESON has launched its new Remote Operations Center (ROC) at its office location in Irving, Texas. The ROC enables central access for monitoring and/or controlling the company’s air separation units, hydrogen plants, and on-site/pipeline gas production plants.
The MATHESON New Johnsonville (Tennessee) facility has created an official Certified Wildlife Habitat™ that is recognized by the National Wildlife Federation® (NWF).
