Our History

Expansion and on-going success

  • History of Messer Cutting Systems

Messer Cutting Systems India is writing an on-going success story since many decades.

Until 1997
Messer was represented in India via agents with various sales and distribution channels. Until then all the machines had been supplied from our facility in Germany.

Due to an increasing demand in India our facility in China did supply additional products into this market.

Activities were increased by setting up an own Messer Cutting Systems sales and service support in India. All activities were managed from China and the Singapore office.

After the merger of Messer Cutting & Welding and Eutectic Castolin the Messer cutting activities were merged into EWAC, a 50/50 JVC between MEC and Larson & Turbro. The office moved from Pune to the headquarters of EWAC Alloys in Mumbai. The cutting organization within EWAC formed a specialized team of sales and service engineers, selling, installing and servicing our machines.
