Improved Manufacturing Capacity and Supply Chain Efficiency

At AB-CO PURGE we have improved our manufacturing capacity and supply chain efficiency in order to respond to the increasing demand for our purge and pressurization products. We are encouraged by this increase in demand brought on by some of these key factors:

  • The continuing focus on safety in hazardous working locations.
  • The high-cost of designing, certifying, and installing electrical equipment as either explosion proof and/or intrinsically safe.
  • The increased use of automation requiring electrical/electronic controls in hazardous work environments. For example: Robotics, programmable controllers, computers, printers, calibrators, analyzers, and video displays.
  • The recent boom in the petro-chemical industry brought on by the lower cost of petroleum-based raw material.
