Messer Group in negotiations to acquire Air Liquide’s businesses in Czech Republic and Slovakia

By Mary Page Bailey |

Messer Group GmbH (Bad Soden, Germany; www.messergroup.com)announced that it has entered into exclusive negotiations with Air Liquide regarding the purchase of Air Liquide’s entities in Czech Republic and Slovakia. This transaction is subject to the final and definitive agreement between the parties, and will be carried out in the framework of the relevant social processes and ongoing dialogue with the employee representatives’ bodies.

Messer will thus take over 53 experienced employees with office locations in Prague and Trnava. Messer intends to fully integrate and merge the two companies into the respective Messer companies in Prague and in Bratislava in the short term. “The companies complement each other ideally in terms of their activities and their organisational, operational and production structures. We see many synergies and positive effects with respect to production, logistics, sales and customer supply,” explains Stefan Messer, owner and CEO of the Messer Group GmbH, and adds: “Taking over Air Liquide’s entities in Czech Republic and Slovakia will further strengthen our position on the industrial gases market in Central Europe.”
