Matheson, Basking Ridge, N.J., has announced plans to build a new large-capacity air-separation unit (ASU) to supply oxygen, nitrogen, and argon in Mesa, Ariz. The investment is intended to improve support for current customers and the recently acquired U.S. Airweld distribution business. The company also has ASUs in Southern California and New Mexico.
The plant is expected to be onstream, producing high-purity merchant product, during the third quarter of 2014.
