Messer Cutting Systems celebrates 60 years of precision cutting technology in North America

Menomonee Falls, WI - Messer Cutting Systems began in the United States in 1955, under the name CRO Engineering as a flame cutting machinery manufacturer with three employees working in 3000 square feet of rented space in Milwaukee, WI.

CRO Engineering pioneered many of the fundamental applications which are common today such as NC control, CNC control, and laser cutting. In 1969, CRO Engineering delivered the first American-built, numerically controlled laser cutting machine for shape cutting titanium in the aerospace industry.

Messer Greisheim GmbH, with cutting history dating back to the late 1800s, purchased CRO in 1973 and changed the name to MG Cutting Systems, which became MG Systems & Welding and eventually Messer Cutting Systems, a subsidiary of Messer Cutting Systems GmbH Germany.

Currently, Messer Cutting Systems is located in a 100,000-sq-ft. facility with 190 employees in Menomonee Falls. They manufacture oxyfuel, plasma, and laser plate machinery for a wide range of industries, including steel service centers, metal fabrication, structural steel, agricultural, energy, shipbuilding, transportation, and construction.

Messer has expanded their offering to include optional features such as beveling units, markers, lifters, drills, fiber lasers, material handling, and accessories. Messer has sales and service offices located throughout the United States, Canada, and Mexico.
