The Centre for Business History at the University of Glasgow has been commissioned to carry out a four year study on the historical development of the unsung but vitally important international industrial gases industry.

The economic and technological impact of the industry cannot be overestimated and the study - funded by German-based gas and engineering company, the Linde Group - aims to give the industry its due recognition. 

Professor Ray Stokes, Director of Centre for Business History will examine sources and materials from around the world, as well as interviewing representatives of the most influential corporations in the industry.
