Founded in 1935, Tech Air is a major distributor of industrial, medical and specialty packaged gases, welding equipment, and supplies. Serving more than 45,000 customers, the company, comprises approximately 550 employees and has annual revenues of approximately 190 million US dollars.

Pascal Vinet, Chief Executive Officer of Airgas, Inc. and Air Liquide Executive Committee Member, commented: “The completion of the acquisition of Tech Air is an important milestone in Airgas' development. Tech Air’s highly professional teams and complementary distribution network will be strong assets to efficiently serve our customers.
