Kaeser Kompressoren (now Kaeser Compressors Inc.) is celebrating its centennial year.
Established in 1919 as a machine workshop in Coburg, Germany, by Carl Kaeser Sr., the company has grown into a leading compressor manufacturer and global compressed air systems provider.
Kaeser began manufacturing reciprocating compressors in 1948. Under the leadership of the founder's son Carl Kaeser Jr., Kaeser introduced the Sigma Profile rotary screw airend in 1975 which advanced energy efficiency in compressed air systems. The company launched the PC-based Sigma Control compressor controller in 1998 and introduced the comprehensive Sigma Air Manager in 2001.
Today, Kaeser has over 6,000 employees around the world. In addition to major events planned in Germany, Kaeser subsidiaries and partners in over 100 countries will be commemorating this milestone with local events for employees and partners.
An important part of the celebration will be a campaign of "100 Good Deeds." Kaeser employees will donate their time and energy to support local charitable activities. These efforts mirror the Kaeser family's long-standing commitment to the local communities where they do business, the company notes.
A special 100 year anniversary website has been established to share more insight into Kaeser's rich heritage and the celebrations around the world. Visit www.kaeser-tradition-innovation.com/en.
