Kaeser Compressors Celebrates 100th Anniversary
May 1, 2019—Kaeser Compressors is celebrating its centennial year. Established in 1919 as a machine workshop in Coburg, Germany by Carl Kaeser, Sr., the company has grown into a compressor manufacturer and global compressed air systems provider.
Kaeser began manufacturing reciprocating compressors in 1948. Launching the PC-based sigma control compressor controller in 1998 and introducing the comprehensive Sigma Air Manager in 2001, Kaeser feels it helped pave the way for the integration of compressed air systems with Industrie 4.0 and advancing the industrial Internet of Things (IoT).
Today, Kaeser has over 6000 employees around the world.
