MISSISSAUGA, Canada, Feb. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Linde Canada Limited is moving its London, Ontario, retail branch to a new location at A-234 Exeter Road, London, On, N6L 1A3. The move will accommodate the merger of the Linde store with Contact Welding Supplies which Linde acquired in 2012.
Chris Ebeling, vice president and general manager for Linde Canada, said, "Merging Contact Welding with our existing store has significantly strengthened Linde Canada's market position in the southwestern Ontario corridor, which is a key part of our overall Canadian growth strategy. However, it also physically stretched the boundaries of the existing location. We needed a larger location."
Linde Canada specializes in industrial, medical and specialty gases, as well as welding equipment and safety supplies. The company markets these products through 73 retail stores located throughout Canada or online via our e-commerce site at shop.lindecanada.com.
In 2013, Linde Canada introduced its Individual Cylinder Control (ICC) system, for its cylinder gases customers. The new system offers a professional approach to cylinder tracking and management that saves customers both time and money. ICC is able to track back cylinders to their original account holder even if returned via another company. This service could potentially save customers thousands of dollars in lost cylinder charges.
Linde Canada Limited is an affiliate of Linde North America, a member of The Linde Group, a world-leading gases and engineering company with around 63,000 employees in more than 100 countries worldwide. In the 2012 financial year, Linde generated revenue of EUR 15.280 bn (USD 19.9 bn).
