To meet increasing global demand, Matheson and Zenithtec have announced they will partner to distribute nitric oxide (NO) to users worldwide. Under the agreement Matheson will supply NO made by Zenithtec to customers internationally, focusing on Japan, China, Singapore and the United States.

“We’re excited to work with Zenithtec to distribute their high quality NO to our customers around the world,” said YM Song, Matheson Business Development director. “Zenithtec is the only company to synthesize and purify NO in Korea, which allows us to reduce the length of our supply chain to Asian customers.”

“Working with Matheson gives us access not only to their global distribution channel, but also to their technical expertise in gas safety, packaging and technology,” said SJ Kim, Zenithtec President. “We look forward to a long and successful partnership.”

Matheson is the largest subsidiary of theTaiyo Nippon Sanso Corporation Group, the biggest Japanese supplier of industrial gases and one of the five largest suppliers of industrial, specialty, and electronics gases in the world.

Zenithtec is the only company in Korea that synthesizes and purifies NO. It uses a patented, safe NO synthesis manufacturing process and produces higher than 4N quality gas.
