Linde Buys Out Stake in One of the Largest U.S. Independent Packaged Gas Distributors

Woking, UK, January 6, 2022 – Linde (NYSE:LIN; FWB:LIN) announced today it has acquired the remaining interests in nexAir, LLC, one of the largest independent packaged gas distributors in the United States with 2022 sales of approximately $400 million.

Linde’s wholly owned subsidiary Linde Gas & Equipment Inc. (LG&E) has held a minority interest in nexAir since 2012. LG&E has now purchased the remaining 77.2%.
