The local outfit is expected to employ up to 50 in the next three to five years, VP Steve Keckeis tells us. The company specializes in building for the healthcare, higher ed, and life sciences sectors. Founded in 1932, Messer now employs 750 in markets that include Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, and Tennessee. It expects to do more than $500M in business this year. Allow him to make you blush: ?We found Charlotte to be a progressive, friendly, growing city that has its eye on the future.?
