The company is building its first Canadian refrigerant recovery and reclamation facility in Hamilton, Ont. with plans to open in Q4 this year.

A-Gas, the UK-based supplier of refrigerants and refrigerant solutions for the HVAC/R industry with locations around the world, is expanding its operations in Canada with the building a refrigerant recovery and reclamation facility in Hamilton, Ont.

This new facility will be the fourth A-Gas refrigerant processing plant in North America and the first in Canada. The company plans to begin operations at the Hamilton plant in the fourth quarter of this year.

The A-Gas site in Ontario will have the capability to process and clean recovered refrigerant from the local market. Used refrigerant sent to the facility will undergo chemical analysis at the onsite laboratory and will be reclaimed to AHRI-700 standards.

The multimillion-dollar investment by A-Gas will provide the market with high-speed refrigerant recovery; refrigerant supply; a cost-effective refrigerant reclaim program; and on-site laboratory and analytical services.

“Building upon over 30 years of international experience and a strong platform in the United States, we are excited to develop our solutions in Canada further,” said Mike Armstrong, managing director and president, A-Gas in the Americas. “We have supported the Canadian refrigerant industry for over 10 years and look forward to bringing our industry-leading technology to the Canadian marketplace to assist our customers in effective lifecycle refrigerant management solutions.”

“Canada’s long-standing commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions is strongly aligned with A-Gas’ purpose to protect and enhance the environment, and the team is on hand to support our new and existing customers in the region,” noted Jack Govers, Chief Executive Officer of the A-Gas Group. “We look forward to growing our platform in Ontario today and across Canada in the near future.”
