Expansion Driven by Growing Interest in Energy Transition Technologies in the Biogas, Aerospace and Marine Industries 

LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa., June 25, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Air Products (NYSE:APD), the global leader in the production of gas separation and purification membranes, today hosted a groundbreaking event at the site of a $70 million expansion of its Missouri Manufacturing and Logistics Center in Maryland Heights, near St. Louis, Missouri.

The investment, which is Air Products Membrane Solutions' largest ever, is driven by growing product demand in biogas and hydrogen recovery applications, as well as customer needs for the use of nitrogen for the aerospace industry and cleaner fuels for the marine industry.

"We are excited to officially break ground on this important project. This expansion builds on our commitment to be a leader in the energy transition," said Dr. Erin Sorensen, general manager, Air Products Membrane Solutions. "I share in our local team's excitement for today's event and in the promise of what this new facility will mean for our business and our customers as we continue to work together to generate a cleaner future."

A crowd of more than 100 guests including state and local leaders joined Air Products Membrane Solutions employees for the groundbreaking event. Those in attendance included program speakers Taylor Mazdra, Regional Manager, Missouri Department of Economic Development and Mike Moeller, Mayor, Maryland Heights, Missouri.

The new manufacturing facility is expected to be in production by the end of 2025 and include the addition of 30 new full-time positions. Currently, about 170 employees work at the St. Louis facility. This expansion follows a previous $10 million investment made in 2023 to increase production capacity at the current facility.
