Munich – the third largest city in Germany and the capital of the southern state of Bavaria – is home to The Linde Group’s Global headquarters. Known as ‘Carl von Linde Haus’, it sits pride of place in central Munich, a stone’s throw from the famous ‘Marienplatz’ central square. Headquarters for both the Linde AG Gases Division and the Engineering Division are also not far away, located in nearby Pullach. Pullach sits against a backdrop of the beautiful Bavarian landscape in all its glory: the Isar River, the lakes and of course, the Alps.
Jozi, Joburg, eGoli or Johannesburg – whatever you want to call it – is home to the Afrox headquarters (a Linde Group member) which is the main Linde presence in Africa. It oversees operations in South Africa and in 15 other African countries, providing industrial gas products and services. Speaking of gases, Johannesburg – South Africa’s largest city – sits 2000m above sea level so the mixture of gases in the air there is a little different!
Linde oversees its Asian operations from the regional headquarters in Shanghai - the world’s most populous city proper. Of the more than 24 million people living there, 500 of them work at this Linde location! Often called ‘Hu’ or ‘Shen’, Shanghai is the showpiece of China’s booming economy. Another super modern location in a technological, financial and transport mecca, renowned for its stunning Lujiazui skyline, gardens and many historic and cultural points of interest.
Linde Americas regional headquarters is located in Bridgewater, New Jersey where it oversees operations in both North America and South America. Although it has always been in “The Garden State” it hasn’t always been located in Bridgewater. In summer 2016, Linde moved from Murray Hill in New Providence to a state-of-the art building on Somerset Corporate Boulevard. The building looks onto picturesque views of woodland and mountains and is surrounded by many walking trails.
