KAESER KOMPRESSOREN is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. Established in 1919 by Carl Kaeser Senior in Coburg as a machine workshop, the company has developed into a compressor manufacturer and compressed air systems provider with global presence – and has remained true to its roots.

It all began with a small operation producing gears and overhauling car engines. Building on its expertise in engine assembly, in 1948 KAESER took the groundbreaking decision to add reciprocating compressors to its product portfolio. That was the first big milestone.

Others were to follow with 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. Introduction of the innovative SIGMA AIR MANAGER 4.0 compressed air management system in 2001 paved the way for digitalization and Industrie 4.0 capability.

Today KAESER KOMPRESSOREN employs over 6000 staff around the world, whose commitment, skill and dedications to customer satisfaction are second to none.

KAESER KOMPRESSOREN is present with its own subsidiaries and exclusive sales partners in over 100 countries. Even with its impressive global presence, this family-owned company has never lost sight of its German roots and has been synonymous with “Made in Germany” quality for 100 years.
