It’s the holiday season, a time for both reflection and celebration. As 2017 closes and the door opens on many possibilities to achieve and excel in 2018, Air Products’ leadership team and I would like to share a few words of gratitude. Thanks to the dedication of our employees and contractors, the excellent service of our suppliers, and the continued support of our shareholders, Air Products has delivered on its promise to be the best in our industry, providing excellent service to our customers.
Our goals, as always, are to enable our employees the best ways to advance the success of our customers and shareholders, support our communities, and improve sustainability. This past year, the 15,000-strong Air Products team around the world delivered significant improvements in safety, strong financial performance, major projects for our customers, and significant productivity and growth.
These accomplishments would not have been possible without our relationships. So in this season of giving, I’d like to extend my thanks for our “gifts:”
- Our talented and dedicated workforce
- Our valued customers, whose insights and business challenges continually drive us to innovate needed products, services and solutions
- Our friends and neighbors in all the communities where we operate around the world
- Our supportive shareholders
Sincerest wishes to everyone for a safe, joyous holiday season. We look forward to continuing our relationships with you to achieve even more great things next year.
