Air Liquide, a famous supplier of industrial gases in the world, has signed an agreement with China's largest flat panel manufacturer BOE Technology Group Co., Ltd (BOE) on the gas supply for its 10.5 generation TFT-LCD panel production lines in Wuhan, capital city of central China’s Hubei Province, local media said on July 10, 2018.

According to the agreement, Air Liquide will build a bulk gas station in Wuhan Airport Economic and Technological Development Zone (Dongxihu District) on an area of 27.46 mu. The project will adopt the world's most advanced technology to provide ultra-high-purity gases for the BOE’s products.

Air Liquide is a French multinational company which supplies industrial gases and services to various industries including medical, chemical and electronic manufacturers. Founded in 1902, it ranks among the world’s top 500 companies with sales totalling 20.3 billion euros in 2017.

As early as two months ago, Corning Inc., an American multinational technology company that specializes in specialty glass, ceramics, and related materials and technologies, has settled down in the zone, becoming the first world’s top 500 company attracted by BOE. It is said that this glassmaker will invest 1.4 billion U.S.dollars in the matching project for BOE. (hubei.gov.cn by Ruan Xinqi)
