Praxair, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Linde plc (NYSE:LIN; FWB:LIN) today announced it will increase nitrogen capacity at its facility under construction in Pyeongtaek, South Korea to meet growing demand at Samsungs semiconductor manufacturing complex.

The overall project, first announced in early 2018, is Praxairs largest investment ever.

“We are pleased to meet the requirements of Samsungs world-class semiconductor fab to support increasing demand in the region, said B.S. Sung, president of Praxair Korea. This further strengthens our longstanding relationship with Samsung as we continue to provide a reliable supply of industrial gases and innovative technologies that enable them to serve their electronics customers globally, driving efficiency and growth.
