A new liquefier to be built by Air Products will generate an additional 400 metric tons per day of industrial gases to meet growing demand in Polish manufacturing sectors. The new liquefier will be located at the company’s Kedzierzyn facility in the south of Poland, taking the total capacity there for oxygen and nitrogen products to 800 metric tons per day. The facility is scheduled to be on-stream in early 2009.

In April, Air Products completed the acquisition of the BOC Gazy industrial gas business from the Linde Group, making Air Products the leading industrial gas supplier in Central Europe’s fastest growing economy. Nearly 30% of the total Polish manufacturing output and approximately 25% of new manufacturing investment are located within 150 km of Air Products’ Kedzierzyn facility.
