Sauer Compressors USA seeks growth through acquisitions
19 September 2023
Company also adding technological and research capabilities and expanding its manufacturing facilities
Sauer Compressors USA has announced plans to expand its North American operations and boost growth in the compressed air and gas industry through acquisitions.
The company said it is also adding technological and research capabilities and expanding its manufacturing facilities.
An affiliate of J.P. Sauer & Sohn GmbH, Sauer Compressors USA is a manufacturer of quality compressor systems. The company said it is investing in technologies in order to strengthen its position as a producer of reliable and efficient medium- and high-pressure air and gas compressors.
Key to the company’s North American strategy is to seek new acquisitions in North America, thereby adding expertise and resources to meet rising customer demand in a competitive industry. No specific targets for acquisition were announced by the company.
Sauer said it is also enhancing its new compressor platforms and expanding existing compressor series.
“We are excited about the possibilities that lie ahead as we expand our capabilities and explore acquisitions in North America,” said Don Eaton, CEO and President of Sauer Compressors USA. “This strategic move is a testament to our commitment to delivering the most reliable and advanced solutions to our customers while fortifying our market position. We are confident that this growth trajectory will lead us to new heights and enable us to serve our valued customers better.”
Earlier this year, Sauer Compressors introduced the Orkan high-pressure series of compressors.
The company said the Sauer Orkan series is suitable for the compression of many gases and a wide variety of applications in part because a newly developed magnetic coupling makes the compressors hermetically gas-tight.
When developing the Sauer Orkan high-pressure series, Sauer Compressors said it focused precisely on the requirements of the gas industry. The basic feature of the series is a flexible modular system. It includes air-cooled, oil-lubricated piston compressors with an output of up to 110 kW for final pressures of up to 500 barg as well as booster types with suction pressures of up to 16 barg. Special features are the hermetic gas-tightness due to the maintenance-free and wear-free magnetic coupling, and regarding the high-power class its extremely compact dimensions and the clearly arranged design.
The standard types now introduced include two high-pressure compressors for air with maximum final pressures of 350 and 500 barg respectively, a high-pressure helium compressor with a maximum final pressure of 350 barg and a high-pressure nitrogen booster with a maximum final pressure of 350 barg and a suction pressure of 4 to 8 barg.
Sauer Compressors USA, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2023, is headquartered in Stevensville, Maryland.
