01.07.2019 Kaeser’s 100th birthday

Kaeser Kompressoren, Coburg, Germany, is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. Established in 1919, initially as a machine workshop in Coburg producing gears and overhauling automobile engines, the company has developed into a compressor manufacturer and provider of compressed air system solutions with a global presence.

In 1948 Kaeser took the groundbreaking decision to add reciprocating compressors to its range of products. Other landmark events include the development of Kaeser's rotary screw compressors with Sigma Profile rotors in the early 1970s, the start-up of Germany's most advanced manufacturing facility for refrigeration dryers in Gera in 1994, and the launch of Sigma Control, the revolutionary compressor controller, at the turn of the millennium. The roll-out of the innovative compressed air management system Sigma Air Manager 4.0 in 2001 paved the way for digitalisation and Industry 4.0 advances.

Today Kaeser Kompressoren employs over 6000 staff around the world and is present with its own subsidiaries and exclusive sales partners in over 100 countries. Despite its truly global presence, this family-owned company has never lost sight of its German roots.
