Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
“We continue to execute on our business strategy of building out production and distribution density in key geographies,” said Todd Skare, president, Praxair Europe. “Our expanded operations will also enable us to supply industrial gases to our customers across the country even more efficiently.”
