Flor Noelanders

Flor Noelanders has worked at Messer since 1981. He has been in charge of the supply chain department at Messer Benelux since 2006. He is married with three children and two grandchildren and lives in Aalst in Belgium.

My biggest professional challenge at Messer so far has been…
...convincing the Messer executives of the necessity of the “logistical standard”.

What typifies Messer for me is…
...the fact that “you are in good pastures”, as a Flemish expression puts it. It is a pleasant place to be. You are respected, and there are always opportunities to further your development.

My strengths...
...were learned from my grandfather: to be heard without causing hurt. The golden rule here is always to be prepared to extend the hand of friendship.

I have a weakness for…
...anything to do with the family.

What fascinates you about gases and gas applications?
I think the gas developments in the food sector in recent years have been sensational. Who would ever have thought that you could get a juicy apple at a petrol station, peeled and cut into eight equal slices!

The most important invention of the last century is…
...GPS navigation, which gets me wherever I want to go quckly and reliably.
