MORE PRICING CONCESSIONS: All Biocom members now receive even better pricing on Nitrogen. No need to do anything, just enjoy the savings. Airgas has also added a fourth tier in pricing, and can now accommodate additional pricing benefits for our largest members.

BULK TRANSITION SCENARIOS: New to the program, Airgas can work with members to come up with creative solutions to navigate existing bulk or MicroBulk product service agreements. Interested in learning more? Contact your local rep for a customized quote.

MORE PACKAGED GAS CONVERSION SAVINGS: Airgas makes supplier conversions smooth and painless. In addition to "rent exempt status" on packaged gas for the first three months, customers who switch to Airgas from another supplier are paired with a Biocom/Airgas representative to oversee each step of the conversion process.

TECHNOLOGY ENHANCEMENTS: Airgas is committed to updating their offering with new technology to make it easier for participating Biocom members to monitor usage, optimize delivery schedules and keep operations running smoothly. Some of these technological improvements include digital gauges, VersAlert, Isothermal Freezers and Vendor Managed Gas Systems.

HELIUM ALLOCATION PRIORITIZATION: Biocom members receive the highest-level priority for Helium during the industry's current shortage.

PAY SOONER, PAY LESS: New to the program is a discount off of Accounts Receivable incentive if Biocom members pay within 10 days.

CONSISTENT PRICING COMMITMENT: You read that right. Over the tenure of the Airgas program, pricing has remained relatively consistent – while industry norms hovered around 7% or higher, Airgas limits increases to 5% per year or less.

Quality Control
"The cylinder delivery team provided excellent service, waiting well beyond an expected wait time while we figured out all details. He ensured the proper removal, triple checking the order, and maintained a positive attitude throughout the ordeal. We could not be more pleased with their services." – – Lead Facilities Specialist II, Celgene
