Gulf Cryo has revealed to gasworld that it has signed a purchase agreement with Cryo AB of Linde, located in Sweden, for the supply of 14 semi trailers to be delivered by mid 2010.

The newly-ordered semi trailers will join the Gulf Cryo existing fleet in further enhancing and increasing the Gulf Cryo transportation capacity in the region.

The choice of the Cryo AB semi trailers by Gulf Cryo is mainly attributed to the robust design, light weight, and specifications all set out by Gulf Cryo. The ability to meet such criteria was key for Gulf Cryo, as the company’s COO Naji Skaf explained, “Gulf Cryo bulk product sales continue to grow at a vigorous pace and as such we continue to invest in our state of the art transportation fleet.”

“We are glad to be associated for the first time with Cryo AB who has clearly demonstrated to Gulf Cryo that they offered the most optimised product to cater to our needs.”

Gunnar Lennerås, Managing Director of Cryo AB, enthusiastically added, “The order from Gulf Cryo is an important part of the Cryo AB ambitions to broaden its market exposure in the Middle East, and as such Gulf Cryo represents the perfect match for us, being one of the major players in the Middle East. We are delighted to be the selected ones for this highly prestigious order.”

He concluded, “Our aim is to deliver state-of-the-art products to the Industrial Gas Industry and surely this has been appreciated, to the full extent, by Gulf Cryo in their evaluation process.”

Gulf Cryo Holding, established in 1953 as Kuwait Oxygen Company, is the leading manufacturer of industrial, medical and specialty gases in the Middle East. The group’s proud team of over 600 professionals delivers a complete line of gases from over 20 manufacturing plants and product supply units through a dedicated distribution network of pipelines, intermediate bulk containers and tanker truck fleets.
