Poland: Messer invests in the growing market

Messer, the largest privately managed industrial gases specialist, celebrated the official opening of a new production facility for air gases and a filling plant for industrial cylinder gases in Poland in the middle of June. Messer has invested a total of around 31 million euros in the extension.

The new production plant located at the Łódź special economic zone in Turek is Messer’s second production facility in Poland to produce gases in liquid form for the local market. The air separation unit has a daily capacity of 355 tonnes of liquid oxygen, nitrogen and argon – this matches nearly 16 tanker loads. The plant took two years to build. Messer now produces “food-grade” gases such as oxygen, nitrogen and argon in the Polish industrial town.

In comparison with other Central European countries, the Polish gas market has recorded consistently high growth rates in recent years. With its investment in Central Poland, Messer wants to share in the country’s strong economic growth and strengthen its market position.
