Without air, life cannot exist. Nature has a high priority in everyday business life at Messer: the family-owned company not only obtains its most important products nitrogen and oxygen from the air, the industrial gases manufacturer is constantly working on the reduce of greenhouse gases and waste as well as to reduce fuel and water consumption. "We are committed to protecting our environment and the climate. To do this, we not only improve our own processes: we develop gas applications that make our customers‘ production processes more resource-efficient," explains Stefan Messer, owner and CEO of Messer Group GmbH.
The less power the Messer production facilities consume, the better for nature. That’s why Messer has its own Global Energy Officer, responsible for energy efficiency in the production of gases. But gases themselves are as important in producing many everyday products as water and electricity. Messer is focusing on environmentally friendly technologies.
Since 2013, Messer has voluntarily published a sustainability report every year, in which the company presents its global activities for the protection of the environment and the climate in a comprehensible manner.
Messer was founded in 1898 and today is the largest family-run specialist for industrial, medical and specialty gases worldwide. Under the brand ‚Messer – Gases for Life‘ the company offers products and services in Europe, Asia and the Americas. The international activities are directed from Bad Soden near Frankfurt am Main. Stefan Messer, owner and CEO of the Messer Group GmbH, works together with the more than 11,000* employees worldwide according to defined principles: These include customer and employee orientation, responsible behaviour, corporate responsibility, excellence as well as trust and respect.
The Messer Group GmbH generated consolidated sales of 1.3 billion euros in 2018.
