Vodafone and Linde agree global deal

Vodafone is set to provide mobile services across Europe, the Asia Pacific region and the Americas as part of a new four-year agreement with the Linde Group.

The group, an industrial gases and engineering company, has chosen Vodafone to provide voice and data services across 27 countries.

A deal has been struck with Vodafone Global Enterprise in a bid to streamline the running of the group's mobile communications.

The new strategy will also see Linde aim for greater transparency with regards to its costings, while ensuring spending on mobile communications is arranged using a defined system.

Nick Jeffery, Vodafone Global Enterprise's CEO, said: "Like other multinational companies, Linde wants to manage its global mobility needs as simply and effectively as possible while reducing costs.

"We have the scale, the tools and the expertise to deliver worry-free business communication services that will give Linde the competitive edge it needs."
