In 2015, hundreds of our colleagues from throughout the Messer Group posed in front of the camera. The occasion was our first ever global "Employees' Day". T-shirts bearing the core statement of our employer branding, "This is Messer. This is our way", were specially made for the event. I am especially pleased about this clear message and the associated commitment to our company.
I am convinced that we have the right team in place to continue along the same path, both now and in the future, that has brought us so far already – our way. The financial year 2015 was a good one for the companies that make up the Messer world. We achieved nearly every one of our economic goals – many spot on; some, we even exceeded. This is something of which we are proud, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank the people who made an important contribution to this result through their hard work and commitment: our employees. Thanks to their knowledge, their experience, their motivation and their team spirit, they each form an important link in the value creation chain of our business. They represent that which characterises Messer as an employer together with its brand and the culture of a family company.
