Founded in 1879, Linde Group is the largest company for industrial gas by market share and revenue. This popular German company is known for manufacturing all sorts of things in different industry sectors, like science, industrial, trade, public, and research sector. In 1904, Linde Group started the production of hydraulic machines.
