Working @ Afrox (A Member of the Linde Group)

Great opportunities are waiting: opportunities to grow, to be fulfilled and to make a difference. See for yourself...

 

Who we are

Our company

The Linde Group is large: 65,000 employees; it’s global: 100 countries and it’s successful: EUR 17.944 bn revenue 2015. Our size opens up a world of opportunities in many diverse roles but our spirit keeps us together at the core.

Our spirit

Notoriously difficult to define, impossible to impose. Spirit can only be felt, sensed and embodied. That’s what our employees do. They live and breathe the Afrox spirit; it’s what binds us all together. It simply defines the way that we work: expressing our core values and principles in all that we do. Find out more here.

Our business

We are all too often associated with the cold face of engineering, when in fact, we are touching peoples’ lives with our services and products. Whether in the Gases division, Engineering division or Gist – our distribution and logistics division; whether a nurse, an engineer or a driver, you can be sure that you’ll be making a difference.

Our mission

Our mission is simple: to become the leading global gases and engineering company admired for our people. It’s that last bit that sets us apart. We know it will be your ideas, creativity and dedication that will drive our innovation and growth. We can’t succeed if our employees don’t succeed, so we do all we can to make that happen.

Our responsibility

We are focused on today's success, but accept our responsibility for future generations. We know sustainability is important to you: it is equally as important to us. We are therefore committed to behaving responsibly towards people and the environment and to conserving natural resources.

Why work at Afrox

We employ more than 4 000 people in our network of branches, offices, and factories across the sub-continent.

Afrox is southern Africa's leading manufacturer and marketer of gases and welding products.

The most important contributors to Afrox's success in South Africa as well as the rest of sub-Saharan Africa, are our people and the leadership skills of our managers. We rely on the skills, experience, motivation and innovation of our people, together with our extensive technology, plant, equipment and financial resources to develop innovative solutions to meet the needs of our customers, now and in the future.

The challenge of organisations to meet the increasing demands of customers and globalisation in both markets and technology, and to win business is relentless. The industries in which we work require adherence to clearly defined and consistently high service, product and delivery standards. Hence, you will find in Afrox a vigorous performance management process which emphasises team and individual accountability for results.

The continued growth of our business is dependent on a team of gifted individuals that enable us to meet the business needs of today, and lead us into a future of continued prosperity. Afrox therefore looks carefully to identify and select people whom we believe will fit this profile.
