African Oxygen Limited (Afrox) has announced that it will release its interim results to 30th June 2008 later this summer, on 21st August.

Managing Director, Tjaart Kruger, will be available for media telephone interviews between on the day, and thereafter will be available for radio and televised broadcasts, while a press release will follow and gasworld will bring its readers the news on our website.

Back in May this year, Afrox declared how its Capex programme had paid off and a number of investments had been made in securing the company’s core strengths as part of its growth strategy.

At the time of the announcement, Kruger had explained, “Our one billion rand capital expenditure of 2007 has been invested in facilities that will underpin our strategy and restore Afrox’s core strengths. 2008 will see the commissioning of the last major projects; namely a 100 tonne per day ASU and 150 tonne per day liquid nitrogen unit at Kuilsriver.$quot;

$quot;In Sasolburg, there is our 250 tonne per day CO2 plant; and importantly, our state-of-the-art cylinder-filling hub in Germiston and MIG-wire plant at Brits will also be operating to capacity.$quot;
