Air Products Expands Maryland Heights, Missouri, Operations

Air Products, a global industrial gases company, plans to expand manufacturing and logistics operations in Maryland Heights, Missouri. The more than $70 million project is expected to create 30 jobs.

The investment will allow the company to meet growing product demand in biogas and hydrogen recovery applications, in addition to customer needs for nitrogen used in the aerospace industry and cleaner fuels for the marine industry. Production is scheduled to begin by the end of 2025.

“We are excited to announce this investment to significantly expand the footprint and production capacity of our St. Louis manufacturing and logistics center,” said Dr. Erin Sorensen, General Manager of Air Products Membrane Solutions. “This expansion shows our commitment to continue to be a leader in the energy transition by creating innovative products for a safer, cleaner and more productive world. This expansion also highlights our ongoing commitment to the local community and our talented and motivated employees in the region. We are proud to continue to grow and expand our global manufacturing capabilities in the United States in St. Louis.”

The project is being supported by the Missouri Works program, a tool that helps companies expand and retain workers by providing access to capital through withholdings or tax credits for job creation.

“Air Products’ expansion is the latest example of the incredible business growth that’s helping Missourians prosper in St. Louis,” noted Michelle Hataway, Director of the Department of Economic Development. “We appreciate this company’s commitment to the community as it creates new opportunities and helps drive economic growth in the region.”

The company designs, engineers, manufactures, and markets a full portfolio of PRISM Membrane Separators, Marine Systems, and Engineered-to-Order Systems to protect lives and goods at sea, on land, and in the air.
