Airgas to Build Specialty Gases Plant in Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf announced Wednesday that Air Liquide-owned industrial gases firm Airgas USA LLC plans to build a new specialty gases plant in Plumsteadville, PA, creating about 30 new positions over three years. 

Investing about $20 million in the project, Airgas said the new facility will manufacture custom blended and high-end pure gases.  

“We are pleased to expand our footprint in Bucks County and leverage strong community partnerships we’ve developed over the past few decades,” Pascal VInet, chief executive officer of Airgas Inc. and vice president of Air Liquide’s Executive Committee, said in a press release issued by Gov. Wolf’s office. “This new, efficient production facility will allow us to bolster our supply chain in order to reliably and safely serve customers throughout Pennsylvania, the mid-Atlantic, and across the country.”

The company will receive about $60,000 in Job Creation Tax Credits when the new jobs become available. Airgas also obtained a funding proposal from the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development for a Pennsylvania First grant totaling $150,000 and and $31,500 in funding for worker training. 

Airgas USA is based out of Radnor, PA.
