April 6, 2020
Air Liquide increases production and inventory of essential medical gases, like oxygen, and is actively managing its gas assets and safety hardgoods inventory to prioritize the needs of the U.S. healthcare system and government.

Air Liquide, a provider of gases, technologies and services for industry and health, is reportedly fully mobilized to respond to the increasing need for medical oxygen to bring stability to the supply chain in combating the COVID-19 pandemic in the U.S. Since the beginning of the coronavirus outbreak, Air Liquide in the U.S. says it has activated business continuity plans to maximize efficiency and maintain its activities, while increasing its medical gas production capabilities to meet the current demand. Air Liquide has reportedly been proactively communicating with medical customers, specifically hospitals, through its region-based specialists to appropriately manage the supply of the most critically needed medical gases, such as oxygen.

In addition to maintaining inventory levels at customers’ onsite liquid medical oxygen storage units and within the fill plants of Airgas, Air Liquide is also working to shift excess cylinder assets to areas with the greatest anticipated need and is preparing portable assets to serve the eventual oxygen needs of mobile treatment centers. Air Liquide is working in partnership with local government officials to ensure an uninterrupted source of assets during this critical time, according to the company.
