Nippon Gases in Italy

A centenary company with innovative, agile and technological spirit.

Our company is one of the main Italian companies active in the market for the production and distribution of industrial, medical and refrigerant gases.

Thanks to our strong roots in the territory and a complete range of technology, products and services, we work to help our customers achieve excellent results in terms of production, economics and the environment.
Our solutions find application in a wide variety of sectors: chemicals, healthcare, food and beverage, metallurgy, refrigeration and air conditioning, diving and many others.

Our goal is to improve the future through gases.
We understand customer needs by offering high value-added solutions and develop partnerships in a wide variety of sectors with the aim of building a more sustainable society together. 
We works alongside companies to help them achieve results that contribute to improving the daily lives of many people. 
Our products and technologies have no colour or shape, yet they are as concrete as can be imagined. Because a sector such as the gas sector, not very known to the general public, forms the basis for activities from which we all benefit, in the food sector as well as in the health sector, passing through air conditioning and industrial processes.
A simple but fundamental concept, a statement that speaks of excellence and determination.
