CLEVELAND, Feb. 4, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Chart Industries, Inc. ("Chart") (Nasdaq:GTLS) today announced that Norman R. McCombs, Senior Vice President at AirSep Corporation ("AirSep"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Chart, has been awarded The National Medal of Technology and Innovation. The National Medal of Technology and Innovation is the nation's highest honor for technological achievement, bestowed by the President of the United States on America's leading innovators.  A picture of Mr. McCombs receiving the award from the President at a ceremony held at the White House on February 1, 2013 can be found on Chart's website at www.chartindustries.com

The medal is awarded annually to individuals, teams, companies or divisions of companies for their outstanding contributions to U.S. economic, environmental and social well-being.
