The completion of BOC's merger with The Linde Group saw the appointment of Colin Isaac as Managing Director of BOC South Pacific.

The South Pacific business includes Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands and expanding these markets is top of the list for Isaac and his newly appointed leadership team.

$quot;Becoming part of The Linde Group makes it a very exciting time to be working in the South Pacific,$quot; said Isaac. $quot;We already provide the most diverse range of services in the industry, from retail sales through our Gas and Gear outlets to major industrial gas supply schemes. Through Linde, we now have the benefit of being able to access an even greater range of products and technical solutions for our customers.$quot;

Isaac brings to the role over 20 years experience in BOC, most recently as head of the company in North Asia based out of Shanghai. He has also held senior management positions in south East Asia and South Africa and served on the boards of numerous listed and non listed companies in the region.
