Linde completes acquisition of homecare business


Linde Healthcare, a global business unit of The Linde Group, today announced that it has completed its acquisition of Air Products’ Continental-European homecare business following approval by the European Commission.

The transaction comprises homecare operations in Belgium, France, Germany, Portugal and Spain which serve over 250,000 patients and include around 850 employees. With this acquisition Linde Healthcare becomes one of the leading European homecare providers, representing combined pro-forma sales of around €390m in Europe.

“Patients and professionals across Europe will benefit from this move as we can now deliver homecare activities on a truly European level, and therefore redefine how we provide products and services in this area,”

said Bo Dyrvold, Head of Linde Healthcare in Continental & Northern Europe.

“In the meantime, we want to reassure everyone receiving Linde Healthcare or Air Products’ homecare services that we will continue to serve you as before, with all services, all appointments and all points of contact remaining unchanged over the transition period.”

Homecare respiratory services allow patients with chronic conditions such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), asthma and sleep apnoea to be treated at home.
