Messer Story: Born in stormy times

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

On February 1, 1925, Hans Messer is born. The son of Adolf Messer and his second wife Thea will once follow in the footsteps of his father and take over the family business. These are stormy times: the German economic crisis with hyperinflation in 1923 is barely over when it comes to the world economic crisis in 1929.

The recession forces Adolf Messer to dismiss employees. The company is making the most of the situation by investing in advertising and trade show presence during the crisis, as well as providing training to customers and the unemployed.
