Linde plans to build $40 mn air separation unit in US

BRIDGEWATER, US: Linde North America Inc, a subsidiary of Linde Group plans to invest $40 million towards building a large-scale air separation unit (ASU) to manufacture products in Southern Georgia/Northern Florida essential to hospitals and healthcare providers, food processors, glass manufacturers, metal fabricators and independent welding and gases distributors.

At its 23 plants and other facilities located in Florida and Georgia, Linde currently employs over 2000 people.

"Linde plans to extend its strong southeast merchant gases supply network further south to increase our ability to satisfy growing customer needs. Linde has been effectively expanding this market for several years and has been supplying customers from its plants in Cartersville, Georgia, and Aiken, South Carolina. The envisioned plant would expand our service capabilities to support the medium and long term growth of key accounts and industries in the region," said Pat Murphy, president of Linde Americas.

"Locating a plant closer to customers also reduces our carbon footprint, which is an important part of Linde's commitment to sustainability," Murphy said.
