MesserStory: For a handful of dollars

Bad Soden, Germany. - In the anniversary year 2018 - from now on until December - we will tell the exciting story of the Messer family business.

Europe is not enough. The land of unlimited possibilities has done it to Adolf Messer. With ten welding and cutting torches including oxygen cylinders, acetylene torches and other accessories in his luggage, he entered a ship in 1912 which brought him to America.

Shortly after arriving in New York, he sells all his equipment. The first "Original Messer" machines overseas are used for steel girder work in a courthouse or clean-up work in a burnt-down department store.

With the proceeds of 5000 dollars, Adolf Messer founds the US company Messer Company in Philadelphia.
