Québec, Canada, November 21, 2012 – Safety will be the focus of Linde Canada Ltd.’s participation at Québec Mines 2012, a technical conference on geosciences and minerals research to be held at the Québec City Convention Centre, on November 27-29, 2012.
Linde Canada is an affiliate of Linde North America, a member of The Linde Group, a world-leading gases and engineering company.
At its booth (#257), Linde Canada will feature its complete line of safety equipment and Linde branded products, including protective footwear, gloves, shirts, pants, helmets and high-visibility safety clothing. Two mannequins will be on display at the booth outfitted from head to toe in Linde branded personal protective equipment and apparel.
Alain Leclerc, sales manager- Québec East, said, “Our extensive line of Linde branded safety equipment and apparel is unparalleled in the industry. And when to add to that the strategic location of our branches in the heart of the mining operations (gold, iron, titanium and rare earths) in Québec, Linde is second to none in our ability to service the safety and equipment needs of miners in that area.”
Linde Canada will also discuss its broad range of welding and cutting gases and as well as display its unique VIVANTOS® ready-to-use cylinders, which provide a safer workplace because they are equipped with an innovative, protective guard to ensure that delicate gauges and couplings are shielded against impact from objects or falling cylinders – an important safety feature for use in rough environments like mines.
