Linde recently announced it has started up a new Air Separation Unit (ASU) effectively doubling the production capacity of its existing plant at Mims, Florida.
The new plant will increase production to more than 500 tons per day.
The expansion is in response to rapidly growing contracted demand for space launch activity. It will also meet growing demand from healthcare, manufacturing, food processing and water treatment customers in the area.
"This new plant coming on stream strengthens Linde's supply reliability in the region," said Todd Lawson, Vice President East Linde Gases U.S.
"We are seeing a notable increase in demand for our products, not just from aerospace, but across the board. The increased production capacity of our merchant atmospheric gases will enable us to better support our growth in the region.“
