The distributor of welding gases and equipment took a brief break from its growth by acquisition strategy in 2010 as it fought off a hostile takeover bid from Air Products, which ultimately failed. It has returned to acquisitions in 2011. Airgas recently announced the alignment of its 12 regional companies into four new divisions, identified as North, South, Central and West. The operating structure is aimed at helping Airgas leverage its new SAP platform.
