Buzwair Industrial Gases and Scientific and Technical Gases (STG) have signed an agreement to build a speciality gases plant in Qatar, Doha.

STG will be responsible for assisting in the design of the plant, supplying the key components and the training of the gas mixing staff.

Buzwair has been active in developing its capability in Qatar to become one of the biggest independent gas companies in the region, while the two companies hope to develop the specialty gases market in the region over the coming years.

STG Director Chris Street explained, “We are delighted to be working even more closely with Buzwair in Qatar in helping develop the speciality gases market for both companies over the next few years.”

The plant is due for completion in November 2009.

STG has only recently announced the opening of its US Distribution Hub in Florida (1st April) as well as its new HeadQuarters at APV House in Newcastle-under-Lyme, UK.

STG is one of Europe’s largest suppliers of calibration gases in non-refillable cylinders supplying customers worldwide through its network of distribution hubs, agents and distributors.
