Filling Quality and Accuracy

Automation Keeps WestAir on Top of Biotech Market.

Recent years have seen U.S.-based WestAir Gases & Equipment invest mightily in new technology to fulfill its mission of providing quality products and exceptional service to their customers.

"The El Cajon plant was operating 10 to 12 hours per day to keep up with production, giving us little to no chance of continuing to grow with the market," said Austin Romesberg, VP Operations-South. "When we decided to upgrade our capabilities, we looked for technology that would allow us to double our production."
