News February 13, 2006 - Air Products and PVS Chemicals Belgium NV have signed an agreement for the supply of high purity sulphuric acid to the European electronics market.  Simon Earnshaw, General Manager, Air Products Electronics Europe, said: “We are pleased to be partnering with PVS for the supply of high purity sulphuric acid. PVS brings 20 years experience of producing high purity sulphuric acid for the semiconductor industry together with a new state of the art facility, located in Belgium. It will provide cost effective supply chain solutions for both bulk and packaged materials.”  Simon added: “Air Products’ experience in handling and delivering products and services to the microelectronics industry combined with PVS’s technical ability to produce high purity sulphuric acid will support customers’ requirements in terms of quality, packaging solutions, delivery and cost of ownership.”   PVS, building on its 20 years experience of high pure sulphuric acid in the United States, has begun production of ultra-pure sulphuric acid at its site in Gent, Belgium. The Belgian location is well positioned to serve customers throughout continental Europe.  The new plant is supported by a new clean room laboratory which enables a full service offering. The plant has the production capacity to meet a significant portion of the growing market demand.
