News ReleaseAir Products Announces Price Increase For Electronics Chemicals

August 01, 2005 Lehigh Valley, Pa.

Air Products will assess a price increase on select electronic chemicals and gases effective September 1, 2005, which will help offset costs associated with recent manufacturing and storage facility upgrades.

These changes are part of an ongoing effort by Air Products to improve the overall safety and reliable supply of its electronics products and services. An increase of $40 per container will be imposed.

The increase is part of a continuing industry initiative, coordinated by the American Chemistry Council, to improve security at chemical facilities. As part of that campaign, Air Products also completed a Security Vulnerability Assessment for all of its electronics manufacturing facilities—a survey that resulted in continuing upgrades for computer monitoring systems, truck design and logistics, and additional plant security measures.
