Sauer Compressors acquires sales partner

Part of plan to expand Nordic presence

To expand its market presence in Nordic countries, Sauer Compressors has acquired its Swedish sales partner, Söders Maskinservice AB.

The new member of the group of companies will operate as Sauer Compressors Nordics AB in the future.

Sauer Compressors is a leading manufacturer of high-pressure compressors for all gases and pressures up to 500 bar for the commercial shipping, navy, industry and offshore applications. In Sweden, the Sauer Compressors Group has been represented by Söders Maskinservice with locations in Oskarshamn and Kalmar for over 15 years. Founded in 1988, the family-owned company offers solutions in the fields of hydraulics, air and gas compressor technology and filtration. The company serves customers in a wide range of sectors, from industry to shipping. In addition to sales, the business also includes installation, service and maintenance of the systems. Following the company acquisition, the important hydraulics division will remain exclusively for the Swedish market under the name Söders Hydraulics.
