Our History

Air Liquide New Zealand Limited was established in 1983 and the first air separation unit (ASU) with liquid capacity was commissioned in 1998.

In December 1996, negotiations commenced for the purchase of Nitrogen Services Limited (NSL), a small company based in Auckland. NSL’s principal business was the distribution of liquid nitrogen to medical centres and veterinarians. The purchase was finalised in 1997 and the company absorbed into Air Liquide New Zealand Limited, eleven years later in 2008.

In February 2008, with favourable timing and commercial conditions in place, Air Liquide New Zealand purchased ASCOGAS Limited, the company’s first entry into the South Island.
