The Airco Distributor Association has undergone a name change in order to reflect its proximity to Linde North America.

The organisation has changed its name to the Linde Distribution Association. The move is hoped to reflect the administrative and support function offered by the association to The Linde Group.

Mark Falconer, LDA Co-Chairman and President of Minneapolis Oxygen Company described the transition as making, “all the sense in the world.”

He added, “Linde gives us the support and name recognition of a global gases company which is critical to the viability of the association. The new name reinforces and leverages the impact of Linde’s commitment to help retain and encourage the active participation of existing distributors and help recruit new member.”

The newly dubbed, LDA was established in 1993 and has grown to include 70 member companies who have over 400 retail outlets throughout the US.
