Messer will invest $38 million to build a new air-separation plant in Indianapolis, Ind. The production facility for oxygen, nitrogen and argon is scheduled to go into operation in early 2021. It will produce industrial and medical-grade gases for various sectors of the local and regional economy, including the metal industry. The investment is expected to create 23 new permanent jobs by the end of 2021. In addition, Messer estimates that 60 to 80 temporary local jobs will be created during the construction phase of the project.
