2019 marks the 100th Anniversary since Carl Kaeser Sr. – together with eight employees and two apprentices – founded a machine workshop that specialised in gear cutting and car engine overhauling. In 1947, Carl Kaeser Jr., made the decision to start manufacturing the first serial production reciprocating compressors. Today, KAESER Kompressoren SE remains a fully family-owned business that offers and markets its industrial compressed air technology products and services in over 100 countries through its own subsidiaries and exclusive sales partners.
KAESER is celebrating this impressive milestone at many events through the course of the year and at major international exhibitions such as Hannover Messe and bauma. HPC and KAESER's special partnership has spanned four decades and two generations of family involvement and is at the heart of HPC’s business. This was celebrated recently with a gathering of the HPC Burgess Hill team to mark the occasion, view some KAESER videos created for the centenary and to enjoy a piece of special birthday cake.
HPC has solely represented the comprehensive KAESER range of quality, energy efficient air compressors and compressed air equipment in the UK for over 40 years.
