Howden designs, engineers and supplies air and gas handling equipment, including industrial fans, process gas compressors and rotary heat exchangers. Established over 160 years ago as an engineering firm, Howden has grown to become a worldwide organisation with its footprint covering 26 countries and a reputation for high performance, reliable and state-of-the-art rotating equipment. Our products may be found in virtually every industry from power generation, petrochemicals, mining, steelmaking to cement manufacture where the most arduous air and gas handling duties are encountered.
Over decades, Howden introduced many innovations to the world, from the forced draught system and the invention of the Diaphragm Compressor to the commercialisation of the Rotary Heat Exchanger and the Screw Compressor.
This is the Howden you know, but where do you think Howden sits today, on the verge of the fourth Industrial Revolution?
Our reality is a mix of difficult markets, complex customer needs and a global Internet of Things (IoT) uptake. In fact, according to a recent Gartner study, "two-thirds of all business leaders believe that their companies must pick up the pace of digitalization to remain competitive."
