Year-end Message from Seifi Ghasemi to Air Products Employees

"... there are many great things ahead for Air Products."

Dear colleagues:

Whether you are working at a plant or construction site, delivering products to our customers, or keeping our business running smoothly by working from home, I want to thank you for your hard work, commitment and dedication to keep Air Products operating and functioning successfully during these difficult times. The sacrifices you made for Air Products, both professionally and personally, during a very challenging time for you, your loved ones and the world, have been key to our success.

As I have said, true character is revealed in difficult times. This year, as one team, you adapted to the realities of COVID-19 and demonstrated resolve, commitment and compassion. You ensured our customers were safely and reliably supplied with essential products and services. You stood together in our shared humanity and equality, demonstrating our Company’s values through your words and actions. You helped welcome over 1,500 new colleagues to Air Products. These new employees, working alongside you, will support our continued growth together and help execute the many projects we are pursuing and winning around the world. You also provided your support and talents to our communities in creative ways, helping them to weather the pandemic. I am honored to be part of this winning team. I am also proud to say that we kept our promise to not lay off employees nor reduce salaries during this crisis.

Your Behaviors Matter


As we enter the holiday period for many around the world, I ask everyone to please continue to follow all of our protocols, monitor your health daily, self-report (even during holiday time), and comply with local restrictions and requirements. We know that when COVID-19 and safety protocols are followed, they work. We all need to maintain our discipline. It is our personal behaviors―inside and outside of work―that will help keep each other, our families and friends, and our communities safe.

Looking Forward


As we move forward into 2021, I want you to know that there are many great things ahead for Air Products. We continue to operate from a position of financial strength. In the new year, we can look forward to even stronger collaboration and innovation alongside our customers, from the smallest cylinder to the largest megaproject - and everything in between. We will continue the good work we are doing to advance our culture of diversity, inclusion and belonging. We will continue to further improve sustainability performance for ourselves and our customers. We will stand together, knowing that the work we are doing to provide solutions to energy and environmental challenges is truly fulfilling a higher purpose for the world.

I wish you and your families a safe and healthy holiday season.
