Praxair plans price increases for 2015


Praxair is notifying packaged industrial, specialty and medical gas and bulk gas customers in the United States, Canada, Mexico and Puerto Rico of increases in prices, effective from 1st January, 2015 – or as contracts permit.

The increase are as follows:

  • Up to 10% % for nitrogen, oxygen and carbon dioxide,
  • Up to 15% for argon, hydrogen and helium,
  • Up to 10% for facility fees or other monthly supply system charges,
  • Up to 5% on hardgoods.

Price adjustments will vary as permitted by individual supply contracts.
