Dr. Joachim Münzel

Dr. Joachim Münzel is a physicist and patent attorney who has worked at Messer since 1999. He has been in charge of the Messer Group’s patent department since 2003, first at Messer Griesheim and then at the newly formed Messer Group GmbH. He is married with two children and lives in Kelkheim near Frankfurt.

My biggest professional challenge at Messer so far has been…
…converting all the patents and trademarks from the former Messer Griesheim to Messer Group GmbH.

What typifies Messer for me is…
…the good team spirit that exists at the company and the high standards that the employees demand of themselves.

My strengths are...
…an ability to grasp things quickly as well as a technical understanding, which allows me to rapidly turn the many creative ideas that we receive into patent applications.

I have a weakness for…
...classical music, good food, mountain scenery …

What fascinates you about gases and gas applications?
The sheer diversity of applications – from metallurgy to food processing – in which gases can be used.

The most important invention of the last century is…
…difficult to say given the large number of inventions that have radically changed our world (for good or bad) over this period: perhaps penicillin.
