Air Products has held a dual celebration event at its Port Manatee, Florida, LNG manufacturing facility. The company’s employees, dignitaries and invited guests at the event witnessed the ribbon-cutting for a new LNG equipment test facility (ETF) and a groundbreaking for a facility manufacturing expansion project at the site.
