Our cost roadmap and partnership approach allows customers to leverage our technology expertise, which includes everything from dopant blenders and gas cabinets to on-site services and a wide range of specialty gases, which includes our on-site fluorine and NF3 solutions. We are committed to achieving the lowest cost of ownership for our customers and assist them to reach the overall industry goal of grid parity.”



David Naranjo, CEO of Gadir Solar said: “We chose Air Products for their reliability, safety record, engineering expertise and experience on the Thin Film PV platform technology. We have aggressive growth plans and we feel Air Products is the right business partner to meet our needs.”
