Air Products opens R&D centre in Wroclaw


Air Products, a NYSE-listed manufacturer of industrial gases, on 4 October inaugurated a research and development (R&D) centre for welding technologies in Wroclaw. It is its first such facility in continental Europe and only the third one in the world, after Great Britain and China. In the future the Wroclaw unit is to become an Air Products centre of excellence for automated welding technologies.

The decision to locate the operation in Wroclaw was motivated by two factors: the Dolnoslaskie region with its large number of production plants belonging to global companies constitutes an important market for the group’s welding gases and technologies; and the city of Wroclaw is already home to an Air Products welding technologies training centre.

The opening of the R&D facility in Wroclaw will further strengthen Air Products’ position as a leading supplier of industrial gases in Poland, a country it perceives as one of its key markets in Europe, said Piotr Wieczorek, General Manager Package Gases Central Europe at Air Products.
