Elgi Sauer Compressors, a joint venture established in 2008 between Elgi Equipments and Germany-based Sauer Compressors Group, has expanded its operations in Coimbatore by opening a new manufacturing facility in Kallapalayam.
With an investment of nearly ₹40 crore, a 50,000 sq ft facility to manufacture high pressure compressors, pressure reducing stations and portable breathing air compressors for the industrial, commercial marine, marine and offshore markets in India was inaugurated. The facility will also house a technical support center providing technical support for new product development and prototype testing to the Sauer Compressors Group worldwide.
“This facility with expanded manufacturing capacity will help us further consolidate the engineering, indigenization and product support capabilities of both companies and build a strong aftermarket network,” said Satish Kini, Chief Executive Officer of Elgi Sauer Compressors.
According to Jairam Varadaraj, Managing Director of Elgi Equipments, the facility is well positioned to serve new markets and achieve long-term business goals.
