Praxair to double capacity at Missouri plant

Praxair announced plans to expand production capacity at its Neosho, Missouri, air separation plant.

The expansion is in response to the growing demand from customers in southwestern Missouri and neighboring parts of Arkansas, Oklahoma and Kansas in the food, aerospace, electronics, refining, chemicals and other industries. The project is expected to be completed in 2020 and will double capacity at the company’s Neosho facility.

“This investment will strengthen supply reliability and help us meet the future demands of our liquid oxygen and nitrogen customers,” said Andy Sarantapoulas, South region vice president of Praxair’s U.S. industrial gas business. “We are proud to be part of the Neosho community and look forward to growing our presence in this region.”
