Airgas to Build New Air Separation Unit in Kentucky

Airgas separation unit will supply Westlake Vinyls.

Gases distributor Airgas, Inc. (NYSE: ARG), Radnor, PA has agreed to build a new air separation unit in Calvert City, KY. The air separation unit will supply Westlake Vinyls Inc., and is expected to be running by the spring of 2016.

"Our investment in merchant capacity in Calvert City not only provides supply security to Westlake but also expands our merchant gas presence in this important region of the country." said Tom Thoman, Airgas division president.

Airgas plans to expand its atmospheric gas production capacity in New England by building a second air separation unit in Bozrah, CT, which is expected to begin production in the fall of 2015.
