Praxair is increasing the price on its bulk industrial gases affecting its North America customers.
The Tier One company has announced an increase of up to 15% for bulk nitrogen (N2), oxygen (O2), argon (Ar), hydrogen (H2), carbon dioxide (CO2) in the US, Mexico and Canada.
The spike is effective from January 1st 2018, or as contracts permit.
A press release said the adjustments “are in response to rising energy, distribution and labour costs”.
Praxair has been named to the 2018 Corporate Equity Index (CEI) with a perfect score of 100% for the second consecutive year.
The Linde Acceptance ratio for the voluntary public takeover offer (exchange offer) of Linde plc (Praxair-Linde) to the shareholders of Linde AG has now reached a 90% threshold.
