History of the Linde Distributor Association (LDA)
The Linde Distributor Association was formed in 1993 by combining the existing Airdane and MAAD purchasing organizations in partnership with Linde. The original purpose of the LDA was to pool the purchasing power of members to achieve the best possible resale hard good and operating asset vendor pricing.
In recent years the organization has expanded to include:
Forums where members can discuss and resolve common business issues
Joint marketing programs that improve sales effectiveness
The strategy of The Linde Group is geared towards long-term profitable growth and focuses on the expansion of its international business with forward-looking products and services. Linde acts responsibly towards its shareholders, business partners, employees, society and the environment – in every one of its business areas, regions and locations across the globe. The company is committed to technologies and products that unite the goals of customer value and sustainable development.
