Important Information Regarding Helium Allocation - Monday, July 1, 2019

Due to a temporary shut-down of a key facility that supplies helium to the market, the supply of helium will be directly affected for 6 to 8 weeks. As part of this supply interruption, Penn’s primary supplier of helium, Airgas, will be moving its customers to 75% allocation. This means that we will see shortages in our deliveries and the supplier will only allow us to purchase 75% of our regular volume during this period. Our contract with Airgas guarantees access to this supply and during this time, Airgas will not take on new customers seeking helium in order to protect our supply.

If you are a purchaser of helium, you are welcome to direct any questions or concerns to our Airgas account rep, Stacy Hill at 215-356-1671 or stacy.hill@airgas.com
