Matheson K-Air starts second helium transfil in India

NEW DELHI, INDIA: Matheson K-Air India Private Limited (MKI), supplier of packaged gases, has announced the commissioning of its second Indian helium transfill at Bhiwadi, Rajasthan. It is part of MKI’s expansion plan for which it has invested total of $3.4 billion. The new helium facility in Delhi is the first transfill in India’s North region and has the capability to supply liquid helium in dewars, as well as high purity gas in high pressure cylinders and tubes.

The Delhi facility will also fill other atmospheric gases such as argon, nitrogen and CO2 in high pressure cylinders and will supply customers for bulk liquid gases in North India. MKI intends to strengthen its gases distribution capacity by building new industrial gas fill plants and distribution centres in key Indian markets.

“With this expansion, MKI will be the first industrial gas supplier to have two helium transfills in India. The Delhi transfill will help MKI to widen its market presence, as it will enable us to enhance our service levels by being closer to our customers,” said Kiran Karnawat, Managing Director, Matheson K-Air India. “India is one of our key markets targeted for investment and growth, not only for helium business, but for our full product line of packaged, specialty and bulk liquid gases,” informed Phil Kornbluth, Executive VP, International & Helium for Matheson.
