Mississauga, Canada, September 14, 2012 –Linde Canada Ltd has introduced a line of Linde branded safety glasses to the Canadian industrial market. The new product offerings, in three distinct styles, are part of a private label program for its industrial products that Linde Canada started in 2008.
Linde Canada Ltd is part of Linde North America, which is a member of The Linde Group, a world leading gases and engineering company.
Marc-André Rioux, safety business manager for Eastern Canada, said, “Our goal with personal protective equipment is to clothe and protect workers from the head to toe with our high quality Linde branded product line. The new line of safety glasses is a perfect complement to our line of Linde branded safety products, including protective footwear, gloves, shirts, pants, helmets and high-visibility safety clothing, available in all 70 Linde branches across Canada.”
