Praxair,
Inc.
, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Linde plc (NYSE:LIN, FWB:LIN)),
has initiated construction on a project to double production capacity at

the rapidly growing demand from contracted customers in the space launch
sector as well as in the healthcare, manufacturing, food processing and
water treatment sectors in the area. The project is expected to be
completed by the end of 2019.
