11/2008 - BOGE and FS-Elliott announce cooperation

BOGE has strengthened its market position in the industrial oil-free sector by introducing a range of Turbo compressors. In order to achieve this, BOGE has made a strategic alliance with FS-Elliott Co., LLC to deliver their turbo technology exclusively throughout Europe.

The Turbo stages have been tailored for compressed air production and are proven worldwide through the brand name Polaris®. This type of equipment provides 100% oil-free air for large consumers including car production plants, electronics manufacturing, food, beverages, and the pharmaceutical industry.

"Our engineers brought decades of Turbo design experience into these improved compressors" explained Ronald L. Stewart, Chief Executive Officer of FS-Elliott.
"With BOGE we have, in Europe, one of the leading compressor manufacturers with well established distribution and service networks and, equally important, a mature engineering team experienced at specifying and winning projects."

BOGE's decision - as a supplier of quality products - to incorporate the Polaris® technology into their oil-free programme came after extensive field testing.
"This Turbo compressor is a premier product. It is manufactured for longevity and reliability with state-of-the-art regulation and control. Furthermore, especially in oil-free operation, where high standards are necessary, these compressors are the first and natural choice" underlines Mr. Wolf D. Meier-Scheuven, Managing Director (Partner) of BOGE.

The three stage Turbo compressors from 225 to more than 1,500 kW fit perfectly into new or existing installations and will provide enormous efficiency increases.
