Air Liquide in Chile

South America

Air Liquide presence in the country was initiated in 1969 after the selling of an air separation unit (ASU) to the El Teniente division of Codelco-Chile. Full operations started in 1991 under the name LOCSA S.A. with the clear purpose of Air Liquide Group to strengthen the company's presence in Latin America, and impose his recognized style of service and commitment to its customers.
