BOC expands in Papua New Guinea
BOC has opened its new K1.2m (approx. NZD600K) Gas & Gear facility in Lae, Papua New Guinea at an official ceremony attended by local dignitaries, customers and staff.
John Evans, BOC South Pacific Managing Director, said the new Gas & Gear will strengthen BOC’s service to its customers across the mining, oil and gas, industrial, health, refrigeration and agriculture industries – with modern gas dock operations purpose-built for the local environment.
Celebrating its 50- year anniversary in Lae this year, the Gases and engineering company has a strong presence in the region with other sites that include its national head office, oxygen filling and storage facilities, and a cylinder testing shop.
BOC is the leading gases and engineering company in Papua New Guinea, with operations in Lae, Port Moresby and Gerehu. The organisation employs more than 100 people nationally and has 16 distributor agents.
