Formed in 2011, Airgas USA, LLC comprises the majority of Airgas’ U.S. distribution business units, including its four Divisions, four Business Support Centers, and 15 distribution regions. The alignment of its legal entity structure with its operating model through the formation of Airgas USA, LLC, has enabled Airgas to create a more seamless interface with its customers nationwide following the implementation of SAP.

“With the SAP implementation in our distribution business behind us and proficiency with the new system steadily improving, we can increase our focus on leveraging our unified distribution platform to drive operational efficiencies and, as importantly, on fully developing our sales channels to strengthen our industry-leading position,” said Molinini. “Airgas USA, LLC accounts for the majority of Airgas’ consolidated net sales and will benefit the most from the full development of our sales channels, including our Strategic Accounts and field sales programs, our e-Business channel following the launch of the new Airgas.com later this year, and the full implementation of Airgas Total Access.”

“Andy has been a key leader in the successful implementation of SAP and in the achievement of the early benefits related to SAP, most of which have been within the business units under the Airgas USA, LLC umbrella,” Molinini continued. “Bringing his proven leadership skills, field operational experience, and financial acumen to bear across all aspects of Airgas USA, LLC will enhance our ability to capitalize on the tremendous long-term growth prospects for our distribution business.”
