Long history and tradition

In 1898, aged 20 and still a mechanical engineering student, Adolf Messer set up a small workshop, which quickly led to his first successes with the construction of acetylene generators and lighting appliances. Even at this very early stage, Messer was looking beyond the German market. In the first seven years following the founding of the company, approximately 300 installations were exported.

Adolf Messer was quickly forced to change his product range: he took upĀ automatic welding and exported his first air separation units before the First World War. The expansion of the company was reflected above all in the establishment of branches and subsidiaries both at home and abroad, which became an important mainstay of the company.

Although we became a World Company, we still rely on our roots as a German, family-owned company and commit to the values of the Messer World.
