MURRAY HILL, New Jersey, U.S., January 18, 2007 -- BOC Gases and Linde Gas, which recently combined to form The Linde Group, the world’s leading engineering and industrial gases company, now offer poultry processors a single source for solutions to some of their most challenging operational problems.
The companies will be showcasing their extensive lines of cryogenic freezing and chilling technologies at the 2007 International Poultry Exhibition in Atlanta, Georgia, U.S., from January 24-26.
Poultry processors can visit BOC and Linde at booth #2242, Hall C of the World Congress Center to learn about the companies’ worldwide engineering and cryogenic gas, delivery equipment and supply capabilities. These include a nitrogen plant in Cartersville, Ga., one hour northwest of Atlanta, which will begin operating later this year, and a full line of food grade gases and innovative cryogenic freezing and chilling technologies. Linde will display its compact and self-stacking Linde Cryoline™ spiral freezer, which has a patented belt design and an efficient clean-in-place system.

“Our combined expertise serving the food industry enables processors to concentrate on their core business – providing consumers with safe, high quality food. We look forward to continuing that tradition and to building a future as the world’s leading engineering and industrial gases company,” Lawson said.
