Industrial gases boost for Scottish industry


Innovative industrial gases company BOC has demonstrated its support for the Scottish industry with the launch of a new state-of-the-art facility near Glasgow.

The new facility, which will provide essential gases and expertise to 18,000 Scottish customers, was officially launched on 20th June 2007 by the Provost of South Lanarkshire, Councillor Russell Clearie MBE with James Kelly MSP of Glasgow Rutherglen.
