75th Anniversary

We are Air Products.
This is our company.

Some things never change . . .
and we wouldn’t want them to.

The passion and expertise of Air Products’ people have helped our customers succeed since our founder, Leonard Pool, came up with a creative idea that changed a long-established industry. When we celebrate our 75th anniversary, we’re celebrating the core values that have always been most meaningful to our people. Safety, integrity, innovation. Understanding the industries we serve, from the vast global marketplace to a small customer’s unique needs. In their constancy through the decades, those values have defined us.


"Perhaps one of the most significant observations I have made...is about perseverance through change. Business processes and tools may change, structure may change, the marketplace itself may change. Air Products people hold close to their values and rise to the challenge, adapt and excel, every time."

– Seifi Ghasemi

75th Anniversary drone photo
Our people built the company during three-quarters of a century of progress and growth. So it only seemed fitting that they “build” a colossal 75 to commemorate Air Products’ October 1 birthday. Employees gathered for this unique photo after a celebratory 75th anniversary luncheon at our Trexlertown, Pennsylvania, U.S. headquarters.
