BRIDGEWATER, NJ - Linde Americas has decided to move its headquarters for North America and South America from Murray Hill and New Providence to a new facility at the Somerset Corporate Center in Bridgewater.

The move, according to a release, is scheduled to begin this summer.

“We want to provide our employees with a state-of-the-art work environment that will enable Linde to safely and reliably serve its customers and achieve profitable growth in the Americas,” Pat Murphy, president of Linde Americas, said in a release. “Our company has maintained a presence in Murray Hill since the 1940s. Over the years, we have made substantial investments and have expanded our presence in this location. After an exhaustive study, however, we concluded that Linde now requires a new office space solution to meet current and future needs. The new facility in Bridgewater offers a more modern and appropriately sized work environment that will enable Linde to remain in New Jersey, close to the epicenter of where our employees currently live.”

According to the release, there will be about 450 Linde employees relocating to the Bridgewater facility, beginning this summer.

“We are extremely grateful that Linde chose to stay in New Jersey and open its new modern headquarters in Bridgewater,” Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno said in the release. “This move will help support the company’s future as it grows and thrives here. Linde has had a presence in the United States for over a century and has become a strong link in New Jersey’s economy.”

The company, the release said, is the largest gases and engineering company in the world.
