Descriptif de l'entité et de l'activité

Helium offers clear growth opportunities for the Air Liquide Group in diverse markets like Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Electronics, Space, Fiber Optics, Offshore diving and the new coming Airship applications.

Helium is transported in cryogenics ISO tanks and thus requires a just-in-time logistics to serve our customers in due time, while optimizing our assets and inventory management.

The Helium market in the Americas encounters significant changes. Today, Helium is produced by only 10 sources worldwide, with the US representing more than 50% of the worldwide market supply.

In coming years, US sources are expected to account for 25% of market supply, therefore the market in the Americas will progressively become an importation market.

Air Liquide Helium America Inc. (ALHAi) is managing Americas Helium Sourcing, Business Development and Primary Logistics of Helium to more than 20 Air Liquide Helium transfill centers located throughout the USA (managed by AirGas), but also in Canada, Brazil and Argentina.
