BOC, a member of The Linde Group, has opened its new K1.2 million Gas & Gear facility in Lae, Papua New Guinea at an official ceremony attended by local dignitaries, customers and staff.
John Evans, BOC South Pacific Managing Director, said the new Gas & Gear will strengthen BOC’s service to its customers across the mining, oil and gas, industrial, health, refrigeration and agriculture industries – with modern gas dock operations purpose-built for the local environment.
Evans said, “BOC is proud to be expanding our operations with a new Gas & Gear that provides a central hub for customers to purchase industrial gas, welding and related products, and seek the best advice from our dedicated team of experts.”
Celebrating its 50-year anniversary in Lae this year, BOC has a strong presence in the region with other sites that include its national head office, oxygen filling and storage facilities, and a cylinder testing shop.
“Since opening our first oxygen plant in Lae in 1967, BOC has continuously invested in infrastructure, safety and our people to ensure we meet the needs of our customers now and into the future. This new facility is part of our ongoing commitment to support local industries, agents and staff where we operate,” Evans continued.
