HOUSTON, June 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/— Houston area truck drivers looking for an excellent paying job with great benefits are invited to attend a Jobs Fair, to be held by Linde North America, a member of The Linde Group, a world leading gases and engineering company.

The Jobs Fair will take place at the Springhill Suites, 5169 I-10 East Baytown, Texas (281-421-1200) on:

  • Friday, June 208:00 AM to 5:00 PM
  • Saturday, June 219:00 PM to 3:00 PM

Hiring personnel, including distribution, safety and training managers, will be on site conducting the interviews. Actual driver testing will also be performed at the site.

“We’re offering qualified drivers an opportunity to join a world-class company that offers premium pay with annual bonuses, a package of benefits that is the best in the industry, and a signing bonus of $2,000,” said Bruce Berthold, south region transportation manager for Linde. “Successful candidates will be delivering cryogenic liquids – oxygen, nitrogen, argon and carbon dioxide—to customers in Houston and surrounding markets.”

Linde is building a state-of-the-art air separation unit (ASU) at the Houston Ship Channel with a transportation hub in Baytown that is part of a more than $200 million Linde investment that includes a gasification train, creating the world’s largest gas-based partial oxidation complex for the production of syngas products for petrochemicals.

The ASU, the largest such Linde plant in the U.S., will produce liquid oxygen, nitrogen and argon for delivery to the rapidly growing market for industrial gases in the Houston Channel area. The liquid carbon dioxide will be delivered from the Linde plant in Bayport. For more details, visit Houston.lindeus.com
