KALLAPALAYAM : Elgi Sauer Compressors, a joint venture between Elgi Equipments and German-based Sauer Compressors Group started in 2008, has expanded its operations in Coimbatore by opening a new manufacturing facility at Kallapalayam.
With an investment of nearly ₹40 crore, a 50,000 sq. ft facility was inaugurated to manufacture high-pressure compressors, pressure-reducing stations, and portable breathing air compressors for industrial, commercial shipping, naval and offshore markets in India. The facility will also house an engineering support centre, which will provide engineering support to the Sauer Compressors Group worldwide for new product development and prototype testing.
