ASCO New Zealand becomes part of the “Messer World”

With effect from 1 September 2008, both parts of ASCO, the technology leader in CO2 production and dry ice blasting systems, were reunited and incorporated into the Messer group of companies. In July 2008, Messer had signed a purchase agreement through ASCO Kohlensäure AG to acquire a majority stake of 51 per cent in ASCO Carbon Dioxide Ltd., ASCO’s New Zealand operation. Messer had already acquired the majority stake in ASCO Kohlensäure AG from Thomas Trachsel via its Swiss subsidiary Messer Schweiz AG in the middle of 2007. ASCO Kohlensäure AG is based in Romanshorn, Switzerland.
