Matheson to Build Helium Transfill- 7/7/2010
Matheson plans to build a new helium transfill facility in Greensburg, PA, near Pittsburgh, PA. The facility will be capable of filling high pressure cylinders, tube trailers, and liquid helium dewars and will service end user customers and distributors in Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Maryland, Virginia, Delaware, and New Jersey. The facility will be Matheson’s sixth helium transfill in the U.S.
“The Greensburg site was selected due to its central proximity to existing and potential Matheson helium customers,” says John Bigham, director of product management and global logistics for Matheson Global Helium. “Investment in the Greensburg transfill is consistent with Matheson’s strategy to upgrade our helium supply capability within the company’s expanding U.S. footprint.”
“The Greensburg helium transfill will strengthen Matheson’s competitive position within one of our core market areas, by reducing our cost and eliminating our dependence on competitors for our helium supply,” says Howard Hubert, senior vice president of Matheson Packaged Gas Division.
The Greensburg facility is expected to be fully operational by December 2010.
