ELGi Compressors Expands Pan-European Footprint
European leadership team, expanded sales and service organisation and broad product portfolio reshapes the European compressed air industry
Waterloo, Belgium March, 2020: ELGi Compressors Europe, a subsidiary of ELGi Equipments Limited, one of the world’s leading air compressor manufacturers, with over 2 million installations across more than 120 countries, is strengthening its pan-European presence. Following the inauguration of its new European headquarters in Belgium, ELGi Compressors has made significant investments in growing its leadership team, expanding the sales and service organization and product portfolio and consolidating its channel footprint across the region.
Chris Ringlstetter, President at ELGi Europe, said “At ELGi, our operational and product vision is to be ‘Always Better’. Today, we’re reinforcing this philosophy by introducing customer-centric, state-of-the-art compressed air solutions, while we invest in building experienced pan-European sales capability, both of which will play a pivotal role in driving engagement with our customer base. In addition, we’re aggressively expanding our channel footprint as we focus on building strong partner relationships across the region.” Expanding its business and adding regional sales leadership and teams across Europe, ELGi is pleased to announce the appointments of the following Regional Managers:
Arkadiusz Wrzyszcz, Eastern Europe
David De Pril (interim), Benelux
Graziano dal Tio, Italy, Southern Europe & Turkey
Nils Blanchard, France
Terry McGuire, UK & Ireland
Tord Sandberg, The Nordics
Victor Escolano, Iberia
“We’re excited to be welcoming the new additions to our sales organization. At ELGi Compressors we will continue to invest in resources to expand our channel footprint. I’m confident that our Regional Mangers’ knowledge and familiarity of their respective markets will strengthen our presence in line with our growth aspirations.” added Ringlstetter.
ELGi’s comprehensive product portfolio across the European market spans portable and stationary compressors, all of which offer customers proven quality, reliability and lower lifecycle costs . This comprises the ROTAIR series of portable compressors for the construction and agricultural sectors, the EN and EG series of lubricated screw compressors and two ranges of oil free compressors including the recently launched ‘Always Better’ (AB) Series.
While lubricated compressors represent 80 percent of the global market for their higher efficiency and lower unit cost, those same compressors are responsible globally for an estimated 2 million liters of unwanted oil vapor that is carried-over downstream of the compressor annually. The ELGi AB series of oil free screw series offers customers the efficiency of a lubricated compressor minus the oil waste, thereby ensuring a greener environment and supporting companies as they seek to meet the European Union’s Green Deal for reducing fossil fuel use while lowering energy consumption.
“Customers in Europe experience significant ownership costs on account of the current technology, considerable maintenance requirements and relatively poor reliability”, added Ringlstetter. “We’re confident that the AB Series as well as our broad portfolio of existing stationary and portable products supported by our experienced team will provide European customers with the best options in improved lifecycle costs for their compressed air needs.”
Elgi Equipments Limited is a global air compressor manufacturer with a broad line of innovative and technologically superior compressed air systems. ELGi has consistently worked towards ensuring that companies achieve their productivity goals whilst keeping the cost of ownership low. ELGi offers a complete range of compressed air solutions from oil lubricated and oil-free rotary screw compressors, oil-lubricated and oil-free reciprocating compressors and centrifugal compressors, to dryers, filters and downstream accessories.
