The company merged 1965 with Knapsack Griesheim AG to the new Messer Griesheim GmbH. After this merge Farbwerke Hoechst held two third of the company shares.
Around 1997 to 2004 the gas and welding related sections were bought back by the Messer Family building the current Messer Group GmbH. The company subsidiaries for Germany, UK and the US were sold to Air Liquide, including a four-year Non-compete clause for the Messer Group. After the expiration of the non-compete clause in 2008 the Messer Group GmbH is selling gases for industrial use again.
