An Industry Leader for over 80 years
In 1926 MATHESON Gas Products became the first company to offer a reliable
source of high quality scientific gases and equipment. From the start, MATHESON
asserted its leadership by understanding specialty gas applications and
providing products specially designed for these applications. Some of
MATHESON's more notable accomplishments include the development of the lecture
bottle, now used by virtually every major college and university in the world,
and the supply of ultra pure gases that served as standards for the first gas
MATHESON's gases also helped forge the most important tool of our era, the
integrated circuit. From the early days of the transistor, MATHESON was there
providing the arsine and phosphine that made production possible. As
transistors gave way to complex semiconductor chips, MATHESON provided the
world's first commercially produced silane, an accomplishment that earned the
industry's prestigious "SEMMY" Award.
In 1999 MATHESON Gas Products merged with Tri-Gas, Inc., to form Matheson
Tri-Gas, Inc. This merger combined the analytical and semiconductor strengths
of MATHESON Gas Products with the liquid/bulk and industrial cylinder and
equipment capabilities of Tri-Gas. As a member of the Tokyo based Taiyo Nippon
Sanso Corporation (TNSC), MATHESON® is part of the world's fifth largest
supplier of gases and gas handling equipment.
Customers in the semiconductor, analytical and industrial businesses depend on

MATHESON offers the most extensive line of ultra high purity gas handling
equipment in the semiconductor gas industry. Products are designed and
manufactured at the Longmont Colorado facility. This 49,000 sq. ft. facility
features 8,500 sq. ft. of R&D space, 1400 sq.ft. of Class 10 and Class 100
Protocol clean room space, and 25,000 sq.ft. of manufacturing space. Live gas
testing is also offered at Longmont.
MATHESON has a complete line of specialty gas equipment, the most comprehensive
in the industry. These products are designed and produced at the
Montgomeryville, Pennsylvania location.
With the increased cost of "poor quality" in industry today, quality and
consistency become paramount. MATHESON provides a full line of specialty gases
and equipment to meet the specification for each impurity analyzed. To ensure
product consistency and integrity, all of MATHESON production processes,
materials and analytical tools are managed using statistical control methods.
In addition, MATHESON measures its quality system against ISO 9000 series

Research & Development
At MATHESON, service does not end at the customer's receiving dock. Assisting in
process and product development is an essential part of the MATHESON offering.
By beta-site testing new products prior to introduction, MATHESON maintains a
leadership position in providing a global offering of field proven specialty
gas and equipment solutions. In addition, a staff of scientists and engineers
continually interacts with customers to improve material specifications and
suggest process improvements. This results in MATHESON customers achieving the
greatest benefit from MATHESON capabilities.
The MATHESON charter is to develop the highest purity materials with accurate
specifications for metallic and particulate impurities and the specialized gas
handling equipment to ensure purity. Focusing on developing advancements in new
materials and analytical and production techniques, MATHESON delivers
statistically proven process control, state-of-the-art packaging and the
ultimate in analytical procedures and equipment.
MATHESON research has led to the continual introduction of new products such
-ULTIMA™ Gases: 99.9999+% purity and guaranteed low metals content.
-State-of-the-Art Metal Precursors such as tungsten hexafluoride and dimethyl
aluminum hydride (DMAH).
NEW! Gas Applications Center
The Gas Application Center (GAC) focuses on solutions for industrial gas
applications, particularly in food processing, primary metals production, and
fabrication. The MATHESON GAC is an extension of the Yamanashi Facility for Gas
Applications Research and Development, at our parent company, Taiyo Nippon
Commitment to Quality through Innovation
As businesses, markets, or products reach maturity, successful companies find
new innovations in products, services, and processes, providing for a
continuous pipeline of innovations that leapfrog the competition and provide
quality products to customers.
Multi-functional Innovation Teams are now an important part of the company
culture at MATHESON. These teams regularly review trends in the specialty gas
market, as well as other markets, with an eye toward delivering the most
innovative and highest quality products. MATHESON's charter is to be a
customer-focused, cost-conscious, stable company that uses its strength in
quality to drive business success.
