Acquisition success for Taiyo Nippon Sanso


Taiyo Nippon Sanso (TNS) will invest in the Taiwanese PSA manufacturer Benson Industrial Gases (BIG) Technology, headquarted in Taipei and capitalised at ¥11.5bn – according to The Gas Review issue 380.

TNS will also underwrite some of the capital increase by third party allotment implemented by BIG. TNS will also acquire 30% of BIG stock – which was set to be transferred in November.

TNS has been engaged in developing its PSA gas generator business primarily in Japan during the past 30 years.
