The $884 million acquisition of the Santiago, Chile-based company should enhance Air Products’ growth opportunities in the region. The deal will position Air Products as the second-largest industrial gas producer in Latin America, a region second in growth only to Asia, the company says. By taking a majority stake in Indura, Air Products will extend its Latin American presence to 12 countries, enabling it to benefit from greater economies of scale and a large talent pool to service multinational customers in more markets, Air Products says.
Indura businesses, with total annual sales of $478 million, include liquid bulk, small on-sites and packaged gases. For more information, go to www.airproducts.com.
