Roots, a Howden brand since 2015, is known for its long and rich history of rotary positive displacement blowers for waste water treatment plants and other industrial applications. We continue to manufacture Roots blowers—25,000 machines yearly—from the original factory in Connersville, IN (USA).
We also produce robust, heavy-duty bi-lobe and tri-lobe designs that deliver reliable performance with innovative Whispair™ technology for low noise, low pulsation compression.
You can read about the history of Roots on our blog “Evolution of Roots Brand in the UK” from the old WC Holmes Huddersfield factory through acquisitions by Peabody Holmes, Dresser Roots and GE before Howden’s purchase of the business.
