The company was originally founded in 1907 when it was the first company in North America to commercialize cryogenically separated oxygen. Over the century of its existence, Praxair has led the development of processes and technologies that have revolutionized the industrial gases industry. The company introduced the first distribution system for liquid gas in 1917, and developed on-site gas supply by the end of WWII. In the 1960s, Praxair introduced non-cryogenic means of air separation, and since then has continued to introduce innovative applications technologies for various industries.
