Airgas has Purchased Penn Oxygen

This announcement is for departmental purchasers who have purchased gas products from Penn Oxygen.

Airgas has purchased Penn Oxygen.   As a result, if you have existing Penn Oxygen gas products, several changes will affect your future gas product purchases.  The following changes are effective immediately:

  • The company name Penn Oxygen no longer exists and will not be available in the PantherExpress System or in PRISM.
     
  • Airgas, unlike Penn Oxygen, does not have a hosted catalog on the PantherExpress System. However, if you need to refill tanks or maintain existing gas products previously purchased from Penn Oxygen, you may submit a non-catalog purchase order for Airgas products through the PantherExpress System at this time.

  • Airgas, unlike Penn Oxygen, is not a Diversity Business Enterprise (DBE) and does not fulfill requirements for Federal subcontracting plans.

  • Blanket orders, previously established with Penn Oxygen, cannot be used for Airgas purchases.  If necessary, you may establish a new blanket order with Airgas, but only if you need to maintain or refill existing gas products previously purchased from Penn Oxygen. 


Recommendations:

  • Existing Gas Needs:  If you need to refill tanks or maintain existing gas products previously purchased from Penn Oxygen, you may submit a non-catalog purchase order for Airgas
    products through the PantherExpress System until further notice.

  • New Gas Needs:   Purchase new gas products from Matheson Gas.  Matheson Gas is a University-wide Contracted Supplier with a hosted catalog in the PantherExpress System.

  • DBE Questions:  Consult Dr. Renée Galloway, Supplier Diversity Administrator, for assistance.


If you have further questions, please submit an inquiry to PantherExpress Customer Service or call 412-624-3578.
