Our History: One Company

A-Gas Performance Chemicals was established in the United States in 2005 as a supplier of cyclopentanes to the foam blowing market. Later that year A-Gas opened an office in Guadalajara Mexico to begin to service the refrigeration market. These two offices were the very beginning of A-Gas in the Americas.

Founded in 1986 RemTec International, Bowling Green, Ohio has been recognized as a worldwide industry leader in the environmental management and sale of Ozone Depleting Substances (ODS) and high Global Warming Potential (GWP) agents. Before joining forces to become part of A‑Gas in 2012, it was one of only a handful of companies certified by the U.S. EPA, and one of few to reclaim both refrigerants and halons. RemTec International is now known as A-Gas.

Coolgas Inc. Magnolia, Texas was founded in 1994, and has become one of the largest distributors of refrigerant gases in the US. They supply refrigerants and refrigerant services across the globe. Coolgas retains a multi-million pound inventory, and supplies both large and small companies worldwide. Coolgas was acquired by A-Gas in 2012 and has since re-branded as such.

Rapid Recovery in Peoria, AZ joined the A-Gas Group in June of 2016. As the world’s largest refrigerant recovery company, Rapid Recovery adds job site recovery, expanded separation capabilities and a nationwide presence to the A-Gas team. With over 40 locations in the US, We can recover your refrigerant anywhere, anytime! Rapid Recovery is the service division of A-Gas.

Diversified PureChem in Rhome, TX is the latest company to join the A-Gas US team. DPC brings a nationwide reach with 13 regional locations offering easy refrigerant exchange services to the refrigerant contractor network. The acquisition of DPC also added significant refrigerant separation capabilities to the A-Gas arsenal.  

Together, these companies form the Americas division of A-Gas, one of the most experienced, environmentally and legally compliant halocarbon suppliers in the world.

With a strong worldwide network of suppliers, a wealth of industry experience and offices on five continents, you know A-Gas can suit the requirements of your business, and will be there for you, wherever and whenever you need them.
