About Us


Our people

Our people are at the core of what we do and, supported by industry leading engineering and our extensive track record, we build relationships that offer true, long-term value.  It is our people that make the difference. They are behind our engineering and can install, fix and upgrade any of our industrial  fans and process gas compressors.  We pride ourselves on custom building an air and gas handling application to meet our customers’ distinctive needs. That’s where our worldwide experience, specialist expertise and supportive people really make all the difference.
