Reimagine What's Possible

Air Products owns and operates a diverse portfolio of industrial gas plants, and develops innovative technology, applications, and equipment solutions serving over 30 different industries. We also internally perform the Engineering, Procurement, and Construction Management (EPCM) of our own plants within our Americas Project Delivery Organization. We are seeking a Project Manager to support our team located at our corporate headquarters in Allentown, PA, or Houston, TX office complex.

The types of projects led by this role are primarily related to design and construction of new greenfield industrial gas plants but may also include retrofits. Common processes are hydrogen (SMR, ATR, POX), ammonia, and cryogenic air separation (ASU). We are committed to be on the forefront of the clean energy transition, so many of the projects involve blue or green technologies with a focus on sustainability and renewable energy. Typical travel is expected to be 25% - 50% on average over the project duration (as needed) to engineering offices, supplier shops, module yards, construction site, and will depend on the specific project.

The reports include safety information, project execution progress, cost and schedule forecasts, and risks. You will need to succinctly articulate issues and challenges as well as proposed mitigations and resolutions.

You may also support project proposal work by developing the scope and execution strategy, identifying risks, vetting the schedule and costs, and leading review with key stakeholders.
