Our History: A Legacy of Innovation
Where we’ve been says a lot about where we’re going
At Versum Materials, our innovation-driven past is what makes us future ready. We used to be part of Air Products, a global leader in the industrial gas industry. Our experience in specialty materials goes back decades.
In the 1960s, Air Products recognized that many of its products, like oxygen and hydrogen, were building-block chemicals, so it diversified into process intermediate chemicals. The company expanded its chemical business into the electronics market in the 1970s and launched a number of game-changing technologies along the way.
That spirit of relentless, enthusiastic innovation continues to drive everything we do at Versum Materials today.
