Air Liquide acquires Messer Group subsidiary in Turkey
Air Liquide SA said it is accelerating its growth in the Turkish market with the acquisition of Messer Aligaz Sanayi Gazlari, a subsidiary of industrial gas company Messer Group GmbH.

PARIS, FRANCE: Air Liquide SA said it is accelerating its growth in the Turkish market with the acquisition of Messer Aligaz Sanayi Gazlari, a subsidiary of industrial gas company Messer Group GmbH.

Messer Aligaz provides industrial, medical and specialty gases to a range of industries in Turkey. The company, which has close to 70 employees, generated a revenue of around  €9 million in 2014.

The activities of Messer Aligaz, mainly focused on the industrial merchant segment, are located in the highly industrialized regions of the Marmara and the Aegean. The company owns and operates an air separation unit (ASU) for the production of liquid oxygen, nitrogen and argon, and 3 cylinder filling centres.

With this acquisition, Air Liquide enters the Marmara region and will now be present in the three main industrial areas of the country: Ankara, Istanbul and Izmir. The combination of the two companies will further increase Air Liquide’s capacity to create value for its customers.

This acquisition is part of continued investments by Air Liquide in Turkey. “Turkey is a growing economy, which has significantly invested in many industrial fields. This acquisition will further strengthen our overall presence in this country, allowing Air Liquide to better serve its customers,” said Christophe Chalier, vice president, Eastern Europe, Air Liquide.
