An agreement approved by the Mesa City Council on June 17 is expected to benefit high tech businesses in the southeast part of the city.
According to a press release, the agreement with Matheson Tri-Gas Inc. to build an air separation plant at the corner of Pecos and Meridian roads will lead to the erection of an air separation system which divides nitrogen, oxygen and argon through a chilling and compressing process. The gases are necessary for business operations ranging from food processing and medical devices to semiconductors.
“Matheson Tri-Gas produces the industrial gases needed by high-tech manufacturers to drive industry. The addition of Matheson to the Mesa Gateway Area will not only invigorate our innovation economy, it will help us reach our goal of making the region a high-wage job hub,” said District 6 councilmember Scott Somers in the release.
