Messer Cutting Systems through an affiliate company, acquires US-American manufacturer of Oxyfuel products, Flame Technologies

 

On February 1, 2022, Messer Cutting Systems acquired the US-American manufacturer of products in the oxyfuel sector, Flame Technologies, Inc. (Flame Tech) through an affiliate company. With Flame Tech, Messer Cutting Systems strengthens its position as an international solution provider of Oxyfuel, Steel Mill and pre-heating solutions.

Flame Tech produces innovative, high-quality oxyfuel welding, cutting, and heating products for the U.S. and international markets. The company was founded in 1980 and since then has been family owned. Forty-eight employees work in administration, sales and production based out of their headquarters in Austin (Texas).

With an acquisition of Flame Tech, Messer Cutting Systems will be able to enter the American market for oxyfuel technology, adapt products to the specific needs of the regional markets and set up an infrastructure beneficial to all parties. Flame Tech will continue as a stand-alone company with its own sales force and brand. Furthermore, the company will become the channel for Spectron gas control systems in the North American market.

„We are very excited to welcome Flame Tech into the Messer world. The American market offers great potential in the field of oxyfuel technology. We will benefit from the synergies of our joined product portfolios in the Americas as well as in our international market," says John Emholz, President and CEO Global of Messer Cutting Systems.

„Both companies have a lot of experience and knowledge. We are confident that both sides will benefit from this acquisition in the mid- and long-term," adds Shawn Toops, CEO of Flame Tech. "We can now offer our customers around the world the most reliable and safe products and solutions for oxyfuel welding, cutting and heating."

Flame Tech is a manufacturer of highly productive, cost-effective oxyfuel welding, cutting, and heating products. The company was founded in 1980. Forty-eight employees and sales representatives work there.
