On the 9th of May 2017, a German delegation visited the production site operated by Messer, largest privately run industrial gases specialist, in the Croatian town of Zaprešić.
The minister-president of the Federal German state of Hesse, Volker Bouffier, was joined by 15 elected representatives as they toured a production facility for the air gases oxygen (O2), nitrogen (N2) and argon (Ar) as well as a cylinder gas filling plant.
Robert Mustač, Managing Director of Messer in Croatia, gave a presentation outlining his experiences with the German company’s entry into the Croatian market, “Our bundled German and Croatian know-how as well as an organised approach have yielded success in the past 25 years.”
The visit by the delegation was organised by the German-Croatian Chamber of Commerce.
Messer entered the Croatian market in 1992 and now operates two ASU’s, one carbon dioxide (CO2) plant, one nitrous oxide plant and one acetylene production plant.
gasworld business intelligence has estimated that Messer generated €33m ($36m) in revenue in 2016 through its Croatian subsidiary.
