Linde Global Services Romania (LGS Ro), part of the Linde Plc group, one of the world leaders in the supply of industrial gases and engineering solutions, expands its presence in Romania and inaugurates the new offices in Iulius Town.
Linde Plc is one of the most important leaders in the gas and engineering solutions industry. In Romania, Linde Global Services started to write its success story in 2014 as an independent related service centre of Linde Plc.
As a standalone company in Romania, LGS Ro is supporting a variety of intra-company functions and customer services in Order-to-Cash processes, from order management and billing through to asset management and collections. In the last two years 2021-2023, we had a huge ramp up, bringing new services in the order management area and doubling our personnel to over 200 people today, all delivering in the German language.
Significant growth in the last two years
Linde Global Services consolidated its position in Romania by constantly increasing the number of employees, which allowed the organisation to respond to the demands and needs of customers, as well as the continuously expanding business volume.
“We have enjoyed tremendous growth over the past two years, bringing new services to the customer service area and doubling the number of employees to over 200 people today, all of whom are professional German speakers. We are a community of engaged and proactive people, eager to turn any challenge into an opportunity for learning and development. We pride ourselves with an organisational culture based on communication, collaboration and teamwork.” says Oana Mucică, Managing Director of Linde Global Services Romania
Inauguration of the new offices in Iulius Town
Relocating the business to a new office area within Iulius Town is a confirmation of Linde Global Services’ long-term commitment to its employees and to society.
“I am glad that Linde Global Services chose Timișoara to expand its services. It is a strong signal of confidence in Timișoara and I am confident that they will find here the best offer in Romania for a sustainable development. Our strategy is to make Timișoara a magnet for top companies, such as Linde Global Services. But also to attract professionals who find attractive jobs and a high quality of life in Timișoara.

It proves that Timișoara’s diversity is not only a source of pride, but also an engine for prosperity”, said Mayor Dominic Fritz.

In the pandemic and post-pandemic context, we have reinvented ourselves and identified new ways to ensure work-life balance for our employees. We designed this new office space with a focus on collaboration, innovation and comfort to create a positive and stimulating work environment. Our office schedule is a hybrid one, thus we also support the desire of our colleagues to have more flexibility.” says Oana Mucică, Managing Director of Linde Global Services Romania
