Airgas and Mizzou sign supply agreementAirgas has signed an agreement with the University of Missouri, making the company the leading supplier of specialty gases, equipment and safety products to the university.

The University of Missouri system, which has campuses in Colombia, Kansas City and St. Louis, also includes the Missouri University of Science & Technology in Rolla. The chemistry, biology, physics and various other science departments at these institutions require products like the ones Airgas supplies to train students in a laboratory setting.

"We are pleased to be partnering with the University of Missouri to help optimize their overall purchasing process and track spending through more effective supply chain management," said Todd Morris, Airgas director for laboratory markets.

Morris added that the company's procurement methods and other innovations would "streamline the supply chain and deliver total cost reduction."

"Keeping our laboratories and other university areas appropriately supplied with the right inventory can be challenging," said David Silvey, University of Missouri System senior strategic sourcing specialist. "Through our partnership with Airgas, we'll benefit from our customized e-business solution, Show Me Shop, the university's system-wide e-procurement system."

The study of sciences at the University of Missouri has been in the news recently, after the future of the university's stem cell research program was cast in doubt following a federal judge's ruling on the controversial process. Stem cell research uses human embryos, which has raised concerns about its ethics.
