AGA has today announced it will change its name to Linde as of January 2020.

The industrial gases company has been part of Linde since 2000 and comprises region Northern Europe, which includes all Nordic and Baltic countries.

“We have decided to change our company name from AGA to Linde for our operations in the Nordic and Baltic countries,” said Jan Ellringmann, Business President of AGA.

“We are convinced that our customers will continue to recognise our dedicated people for what in the past AGA and in the future Linde stands for: innovation, trust and safety.”

AGA: From industrial innovator to industrial gas leader

“Indeed, Linde is, after its merger with American Praxair last year, the global market leader in the industrial and medical gas industry with over 80,000 employees, and customers in more than 100 countries.”

“AGA is now also visible part of this great new family.”

AGA will be kept as a product brand for the company’s sparkling water products, as well as for propane and welding products.

Olof Källgren, Head of Sales & Marketing at AGA, added, “We have great respect for the values that AGA’s brand and long tradition since 1904 stand for.”

“Therefore, we will maintain the AGA brand for our sparkling water products, propane, and welding products.”

“These products are strongly positioned with both consumers and industrial customers and stand for quality, reliability, and a high level of service.”
