Security of Supply for Electronics Gases

Commitment to Quality, Safety and Sustainability for Security of Supply
The purity and consistency requirements for the gases and chemicals used in electronics manufacturing are among the world’s highest. At Linde, quality is core to everything we do, every day
Industry Leader for Product and Service Quality

We deliver consistent quality continuously, and work closely with our customers so we can meet their needs for the next generation of products. Here at Linde, we believe that quality is everyone’s responsibility, and that zero defects is the only acceptable goal. This mindset is reinforced through regular training and awareness programs for all employees and suppliers. Everyone is encouraged to participate in improving technological, transactional and service efficiency and to share lessons learned. Quality management systems and proactive risk management help us to identify opportunities to eliminate or substitute risks before incidents occur. Where there are deviations from our own or our customers' expectations, these are rapidly investigated using industry best practices, and effective, permanent corrective actions are implemented and monitored.

We deliver on our commitment to quality through:
  • Rigorous measurements
  • Gas purity, consistency and reliability
  • Process and statistical quality control
  • Lean six sigma for continuous process capability and efficiency improvements
Sustainable Supply Chain

Sustainability is hardwired into all of our operations and reflected in our commitment to the development of sustainable supply chains.

We continuously invest in and focus on research and development of products and services to meet the advanced requirements of our customers.

Safety is always our number one concern. We strive to protect the health and safety of our employees, contractors, customers and community. We also embrace an active sense of environmental stewardship.
