Air Products bags Samsung’s contract in China

LEHIGH VALLEY, US: Air Products has been awarded a major contract from Samsung Electronics Co Ltd in support of its new fabs in Xi’an, Shaanxi Province, western China. This investment marks Samsung Electronics’ largest ever overseas investment and the most advanced fabs in China. The contract reinforces Air Products’ global leadership position in the electronics industry and also strengthens its leading role in China by further expanding into the emerging western China region.

Air Products will supply ultra-high purity nitrogen and other bulk gases, including oxygen, argon, hydrogen, helium and compressed dry air, to Samsung Electronics’ fabs in Xi’an High Tech Zone, where the first phase is scheduled to be operational in the second half of 2013. In addition, liquid products will be supplied to the merchant market in the region. Air Products will build several large air separation plants.

“Samsung is a long-standing and strategic customer for Air Products worldwide. We are honoured to have their continued confidence in our capabilities and to be selected to support the most advanced fabs in China. This significant contract further positions Air Products as a reliable supplier for Samsung and the semiconductor industry,” said Wayne Mitchell, Vice President and General Manager, Electronics Division, Air Products.
