Creative Oxygen, our signature
Creative Oxygen is the signature we use in every country in which we are present. The word creative conveys the permanent capacity for invention on the part of Air Liquide’s employees, while the word oxygen is a reminder of Air Liquide’s history. Oxygen is the source of the Group’s development and is a vital resource for industry and health. More than just a molecule, oxygen is a source of inspiration for our employees, who are working to create new applications, for existing markets and those of tomorrow.
Creative Oxygen thus refers to our business while also embodying the capacity for invention and creativity of our employees. Because oxygen is familiar to everyone, our signature speaks to all audiences. It supports our hundred-year old brand and contributes to its attractivity, creating a new dynamic.
