Germany-Based Linde Group Plans Manufacturing Plant In Cook County, Georgia
4 January 2017
The Linde Group, a leading manufacturer and supplier of industrial gases, will invest $40 million in a custom-engineered air separation plant in Cook County, Georgia.
Headquartered in Germany, The Linde Group produces and sells atmospheric gases such as argon, liquid nitrogen and liquid oxygen for a variety of industries including healthcare, food processing and metal manufacturing. The new large-scale air separation facility will supplement markets currently supplied by plants in Cartersville and Aiken, South Carolina. The facility is scheduled to be completed in the first quarter of 2019.
“Linde is committed to investing for growth in the Americas,” said Pat Murphy, President of Linde Americas. “We have been expanding the market in the Southeast for several years, and chose the location of the plant based on its proximity to customers and the strong, pro-business environment in Cook County and the City of Adel.”
“We are delighted that Linde has chosen to locate in Adel, Georgia,” said Cook County Economic Development Commission Chairman and City of Adel Mayor Buddy Duke. “Linde’s commitment to create 35 jobs and invest $40 million in Cook County will have a strong and positive impact in our community and in our region.”
“Georgia’s continued economic development, both on the state and local level, will continue to provide The Linde Group with the necessary resources to expand operations and undergo immense growth,” said Governor Nathan Deal. “Our prime location and a workforce that is second to none will allow Linde to increase its overall production and reach a broader customer base across the Southeast. I look forward to Linde deepening its economic footprint in Georgia with this new Adel facility.”
“We are excited that The Linde Group has chosen Cook County for their new atmospheric gases plant,” said GDEcD Commissioner Pat Wilson. “Not only will this facility create 35 permanent jobs in Adel, but the additional impact from the construction phase will be significant.”
