AGA 1904 - 2000
|AGA’s history spans nearly a century of creative, technical progress and international expansion. Since July 1, 2000 all AGA's operations are integrated in Linde Gas. |
AGA began as a company based around the opportunities offered by the fairly new acetylene gas. Gustaf Dalén’s brilliant inventions within lighthouse technology – recognized by the award of the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1912 – marked the start of a broader development within a number of areas.
|From its four foundations - the flashing apparatus, the sun valve, the Dalén mixer and the AGA compound -AGA developed over time highly diversified operations, from signal systems, cars, welding equipment, radiators and film apparatus to defense electronics, radio/TV and medical equipment. |
|The company’s operations were streamlined at the end of the 1970s and AGA today is a highly specialized gas company with development and applications expertise within a number of areas such as food technology, medicine, welding, environmental conservation, metallurgy, the process chemical industry, and electronics. |
The company’s operations encompass the whole of industry and large areas of the world.
