The Linde Gases Division today celebrates the official opening of its on-site fluorine system equipment facility in Inju City, South Korea. The newly constructed 3,700m2 facility, which required a total investment of €2.5 million, aims to meet the increasing demand for Linde’s fluorine (F2) technology worldwide in the photovoltaic, semiconductor and TFT-LCD device sectors.
Linde’s new facility is adjacent to the existing Linde Fluorine Centre of Excellence, which incorporates Linde’s Fluorine Business Operations Support Centre, Research and Development, Quality Assurance and Customer Training facilities. The site also houses a dedicated Linde electronic special gases facility.
“This €2.5 million investment in the new state-of-the-art fluorine systems facility is essential to support the continuous growth of our Asian customer base. It will also enable us to better serve our global customers with the exceptional quality, innovation and value that they have come to expect from Linde on-site F2 technology,” said Carl Jackson, head of fluorine business for the Linde Gases Division.
Linde works from a total of five electronics technology centres worldwide, located in San Marcos and Alpha in the US, Bielefeld in Germany, Kaohsiung in Taiwan and now Inju City, South Korea.
