On December 5, Airgas, an Air Liquide company and one of the largest U.S. suppliers of safety products, will formally open a new, state-of-the-art safety and welding hardgoods Distribution Center in Henderson, Nevada, bringing 55 new jobs to the area. The construction of the building was completed in August of this year, major systems were in place by mid-September and shipping to customers from the Henderson Distribution Center began in mid-October.

This Airgas location near Las Vegas provides more room for expansion than the Whittier, CA location it replaces and joins five other geographically-optimized hardgoods distribution centers throughout the United States. With over 19,000 items in stock, shipments of safety, PPE and welding hardgoods from the Airgas Distribution Center network can reach 95% of the U.S. population within two days.

Expected to grow to 66 jobs within five years, currently 35 Distribution Center associates work from this location alongside 20 Airgas Total Access® Sales associates who provide inside sales support to help serve customers in collaboration with regional and strategic account teams.

Jack Appolonia, Senior Vice President, Hardgoods Supply Chain, Procurement & Business Process, commented: “Airgas is excited to open our new facility in Henderson. This new space  gives us the ability to optimize our supply chain, better support our local branches, and add capacity to deliver to more customers. We’re looking forward to joining the Henderson community and becoming an integral part of the city’s daily life as we bring new jobs to the area.”
