75th Anniversary

We are Air Products.
This is our company.

The Art of Storytelling

Once upon a time at the office; once upon a time at the plant

Since our company was founded in 1940, we’ve grown into a Fortune-500 company with 20,000 employees and operations in more than 50 countries. But a company’s personality is much more than prosperity, size and location, it transcends words and figures. At Air Products, our culture is all about relationships, almost like a family. And like all families, we have stories.

Since Paleolithic cave paintings first captured the essence of the tale of a great hunt, people have been stirred by a good story, well told.

Air Products people are no strangers to the art and science of storytelling and communication. Sharing knowledge and listening well has been key to our success in building customer, community and supplier relationships and cultivating a spirit of collaboration and caring within and between our teams.

So we decided to commemorate 75 years of business by creating a “family album.” Employees around the world sent in their stories. Hundreds of them. We read them. We voted for our favorites.  And the best of the best are shared here with you, so you can get to know us a little bit better.  Maybe a lot better.
