The gases and engineering company, Linde North America, moved into new 12,000 square foot offices at 3700 West Sam Houston Highway South in Houston, Texas
, to house several of its groups.
The new facility will houses sales, business development, and construction activities for Linde Engineering North America Inc. and Linde Gas. The offices allow expansion of engineering and construction activities to support a variety of projects.
With the recently announced $200 million investment to build a large, state-of-the art air separation unit, a new gasification train and supporting equipment and facilities in La Porte, Texas, the new offices provide space to support activities surrounding the project.
"Establishing a multi-discipline office in Houston enhances our presence in the Houston Ship Channel area which is a rapidly growing market for our products and services," said Pat Murphy, president of Linde North America. "It provides an opportunity for Linde to provide our customers with the best service Linde has to offer."
Bruce Hensinger, CEO and President of Linde Engineering North America Inc, said "Linde Engineering North America has supplied technologies to the refining and petrochemical industries in the Gulf region for many years. This expansion affirms our commitment to our current and prospective customers in the region."
The ASU will be the largest operated by Linde in the U.S. and the addition of a new gasification plant will create the world's largest gas-based partial oxidation complex for the production of syngas products for petrochemicals.
