LINDE3BIM started selling welding gases in the late 1970’s. We saw a need to offer Brooks and area, better welding gas access and better pricing. The original company we dealt with was Canox, ( Canadian Oxygen), a subsidiary of BOC, (British Oxygen Company). Later on Canox was changed to BOC, to represent that BOC was an international company. BOC was bought out by, The Linde Group of Germany approx. 6-10 years ago. The Linde Group is the largest industrial gas supplier in the world. BIM is the largest distributor for Linde in Canada. We have a very strong relationship with Linde, and have been able to arrange good buying power with them.
