About Universal Industrial Gases, Inc.
we are and what we do
Universal Industrial Gases (UIG) is a USA-based, world-wide supplier of industrial gases production equipment plus related engineering, installation and startup services. UIG supplies air separation plants and related equipment to companies desirous of owning and operating their own nitrogen, oxygen, argon and compressed dry air production units.UIG also serves users which prefer to purchase industrial gases as utility-like, "over the fence", onsite-produced, pipeline-delivered products. UIG's plant operations affiliate, Universal Cryo Gas (UCG) supplies nitrogen, oxygen and argon from UCG-owned and operated production systems under multi-year supply contracts.
UIG also supplies compressed dry air as a utility to high volume users through "over-the-fence" multi-year on-site supply arrangements.
UIG and UCG industrial gases supply solutions support processes used in a wide range of industries. These include steelmaking, metals manufacturing, metals fabrication, refining, chemicals, energy exploration and production, electronics, food and beverage processing, rubber, plastics, glass, and pulp and paper. UIG provides plants and services to individual end users as well as to other industrial gas companies engaged in the production and distribution of gas and liquid products.
Our home office is located in the north-east United States, in eastern Pennsylvania; a little more than a one hour drive west from New York City or north from Philadelphia. UIG serves customers throughout the world.
UIG and UCG focus on "middle
market" industrial gas users
"Middle Market" customers are users which have product demands large enough to make on-site gas production more economically attractive than vaporization of bulk liquid products. Typical UCG and UIG atmospheric gases customers require between 40 to 700 tons per day of nitrogen and/ or oxygen.
With UIG and UCG, you have choices
We want to earn your business by offering on-site industrial gases supply arrangements that meet your needs in a cost-effective and reliable manner.
We want to keep your business by providing responsive, customer-friendly service.
We offer two approaches to on-site gas production:
UIG and UCG will work with you to analyze the alternatives so that you can choose the approach which best meets your needs and preferences.
Option 1: Own a plant to produce your industrial gas needs
UIG offers new plants designed for cost effective, reliable, operationally flexible production at your site.
UIG-supplied plants can be provided with any required degree of pre-startup support, up to full "turnkey" installation (complete installation by UIG).
UIG also provides post-startup plant operations and maintenance support, customized to optimally supplement owner-operator in-house capabilities and resources.
In addition to designing and supplying new plants, UIG is often able to offer refurbished and upgraded used production plant options. When there is a good match between user needs and available equipment, fully-engineered combinations of new and reconditioned components can provide excellent performance coupled with lower installed cost and faster delivery than all-new plants.
Option 2: Purchase pipeline delivered gases produced at your site
Typical initial year savings for UCG customers who have been vaporizing bulk liquid products, will be 20% to 40%; which typically equates to saving hundreds of thousands of dollars a year.
If you currently purchase (or expect that you will soon need to purchase) more than a trailer load of liquid nitrogen or oxygen each day (about 25 million SCF per month or more) you should investigate UCG onsite gas supply.
We will meet your needs with the very best industrial gases supply solution
UIG is staffed with highly experienced professionals dedicated to understanding your needs and preferences and meeting them. UIG will offer a gas and/or liquid production system that will reliably and cost effectively supply the products you need; now and into the future.
Whether you prefer to purchase industrial gases as utility-like pipeline-delivered gas products from UCG, or purchase and operate your own UIG-supplied gas production system, our goal is to meet your needs.
UIG supplies plants, equipment and services in most parts of the world
We have executed projects in many countries, including the United States, Canada, Spain, Mexico, Italy, the Dominican Republic, Poland, Peru, Albania, Ukraine, Turkey, India, Saudi Arabia, the United Kingdom and Ireland.
We know that successful projects require viable commercial arrangements
We will work with you to define mutually beneficial product supply and equipment purchase arrangements which reflect your unique situation.
UIG will consider, in addition to straight equipment sale or gas supply contracts, equity investments, joint ventures, equipment leases and credits for sale of a portion of the plant production to others. UIG can help arrange short term and longer term financing and payment arrangements, including Letters of Credit and U.S. Export-Import Bank guaranteed loans for qualified overseas buyers.
