Airgas to Build Gas Production Facility in Tooele County

Press Release

May 9, 2014

Salt Lake City — Airgas, Inc. will build a new specialty gas production facility in Tooele County after signing an incentive agreement with the Governor's Office of Economic Development (GOED).

Airgas, a supplier of industrial, medical, and specialty gases and related products, will build the facility to produce high-purity and precision-blended specialty gases. Airgas specialty gases are used in research and commercial laboratories, for environmental monitoring and for generating lasers used in healthcare and in manufacturing.

“Utah has been recognized as having one of the most diverse economies in the nation thanks to companies like Airgas that bring their unique product offerings to the beehive state,” said Spencer P. Eccles, executive director of GOED.

The project is expected to bring about new 25 full-time jobs when fully operational. The jobs are expected to lead to new state wages of $1,475,181 over the 10-year life of the agreement and $462,998 in new state taxes.
