Leading Gas Supplier, Air Liquide Invests in Mexico
Air Liquide is a prominent French industrial gas supplier, providing services in the medical, electronic, and chemical worlds. Air Liquide is investing in the construction of a new Air Separation Unit (ASU) and a Steam Methane Reformer (SMR) in Pesquería, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. Air Liquide’s decision to invest in Mexico came from the encouraging geographical location the country holds, as well as their emergent economic situation. Air Liquide has plans to supply principal steel manufactures like Ternium and Tenigal with nitrogen and hydrogen provisions in both gas and liquid forms. As a leading global gas supplier, Air Liquide focuses on specialty gases, gas handling equipment, and industrial gases to many different businesses in a variety of different lines of work. In addition, Air Liquide is also an advocate of promoting constructive energy solutions and environmentally friendly alternatives to industrial production and distribution.
The President and CEO of American Air Liquide Holdings, Inc, Michael Graff commented on Air Liquide’s decision to invest in Mexico, “We are very pleased to be expanding our business in Mexico alongside companies like Ternium and Tenigal, as it reflects upon Air Liquide’s growing presence in northern Mexico. This country is the 15th largest economy in the world, and growth in its industrial gas market is expected to continue well into the future due to robust industrial and manufacturing activity in the northern states. Developing Economies are a growth driver for the Air Liquide Group.”
