At Air Products, Supply Chain Education Drives High Performance
Headquartered in Allentown, PA, Air Products provides atmospheric gases, process and specialty gases, performance materials and chemical intermediates to technology, energy, healthcare and electronics markets around the world. Like most companies in its field, Air Products strives to differentiate itself in a rapidly commoditized business environment. To make this happen, it tightened its focus on supply chain excellence - seeking competitive advantage through lower costs and better customer service. This decision to link supply chain management with business strategy is a proven way for companies to move toward high performance. Air Products is also nearing the end of a global, single-instance implementation of SAP, which will govern the company's supply chain and other processes.
