Messer, the world’s largest privately-held industrial gases specialist, becomes new T-Systems North America customer

Dec 4, 2019

Downers Grove, IL, December 3, 2019, T-Systems was selected to partner with Messer to provide SAP and non-SAP hosting, application operations and security services for its operations in the Americas.
Earlier this year, Messer Group and CVC Capital partners acquired most of the North American gases business of Linde plc, as well as certain Linde business activities in South America. This allowed Messer the unique opportunity to return to the Americas markets and instantly turned them into a global player as the largest privately-held industrial gases specialist worldwide.
Messer Americas is trusting T-Systems with the transition of their managed hosting environment from Linde to a new environment in T-Systems’ Munich datacenter. Once complete, Messer Americas is looking forward to building a strong IT partnership with TSNA and working together to develop technology-enabled solutions that will address their innovation and digital transformation agenda in the coming years.
As an agile and entrepreneurial venture, Messer needed a trusted hosting partner to both provide a reliable platform for our critical business applications and to enable our digital transformation in the Americas,” said David Johnston, CIO, Messer Americas. “Beyond simple hosting, T-Systems brings added value to our company in the form of innovative solutions that will enable our IS strategy and long-term business success.”
