At the same time of the change in name (effective 11th October), Linde Gas North America LLC will merge into the new company.

The major industrial gas company says the change ‘capitalises on the strength of the Linde name and aligning with the One Linde philosophy adopted when Linde AG and Praxair, Inc. merged in October 2018’.

Linde Gas & Equipment Inc. President Ben Glazer said, “We have been preparing for this moment to ensure the legal transition is a seamless success for our customers and business partners.”
