FulGaz joins IRONMAN!

Today, the acquisition of FulGaz by the Ironman Triathlon Group has been officially announced! This has been a long time in the making and the deal was sealed a little while ago, but all details have been under embargo until now. It’s been a big process for sure, but one that will be an absolute…
