Air Liquide, which regularly reviews its business portfolio, is considering various options for the divestment of its subsidiary Air Liquide Welding, specialized in the manufacturing of welding and cutting technologies, with the intention to provide it with the best opportunities for its long-term development.
In this context, different scenarios are being reviewed, preference being given to discussions with an industrial partner.
There can be no assurance these scenarios will result in a divestment project. If such a project was confirmed, the employee representative bodies would be informed first and foremost.
Air Liquide is focused on its Gas & Services activities following the Group’s acquisition of Airgas, as well as on the implementation of its company program NEOS for the 2016-2020 period.
