Linde Puerto Rico has added 3M safety products to its line of Linde branded personal protective equipment, making the company a major force in the market for safety products.
The 3M products are now available in all Linde PR retail locations around the island. Linde and 3M launched the product line last month to key safety, health and environment practitioners in the pharmaceutical and construction industries at 3M’s main office in Hato Rey, Puerto Rico. Each guest was accompanied by a Linde sales representative and was introduced to the 3M product line by Iris T. Martinez, 3M technical sales representative.
Martinez said, “3M makes comfortable protection solutions designed to ensure worker safety and meet protection requirements. Products include, but are not limited to, respirators, head, eye and face, hearing protection, fall protection and detection equipment. We produce products that increase the safety, security, and productivity of workers, facilities, and systems around the world.”
Lisandra Gutiérrez, communications specialist for Linde Puerto Rico, said, “Linde-branded safety products include safety glasses, protective welding jackets, gloves and welding helmets. Combined with the 3M products, our offering provides our customers with a more impressive line of safety products than anyone in our market. As a matter of fact, we already have received purchase orders and have sales appointments with several others customers.”
