Linde is increasing its oxygen production amid the coronavirus crisis.

The industrial gas giant said it is increasing the amount of oxygen production at air separation units, where needed, and is working very closely with local healthcare providers to anticipate demand and increase deliveries.

Linde is prioritising the supply of oxygen and essential medical gases in order to support hospitals, doctors, nurses and medical professionals as they care for patients with coronavirus (Covid-19).

“Linde has a strong track record of successfully navigating challenging times and we are working closely with all our stakeholders,” Linde said in a statement.

“We are proud of the work our employees are doing around the world and we continue to put the safety, health and wellbeing of our employees, customers and our communities at the forefront of all we do.”
