HAUG Sauer Kompressoren AG – A new member of the Sauer Compressors family
As part of its ongoing strategic development, Sauer Compressors Holding (J.P. Sauer & Sohn Beteiligungsgesellschaft mbH) has acquired a 100 % stake in HAUG Kompressoren AG from St. Gallen/Switzerland and all its sites. The company, which has been renamed HAUG Sauer Kompressoren AG, specialises in the development and production of oilfree compressors in the 0.5 – 110 kW output range, and employs around 40 staff at its St. Gallen site. Like Sauer Compressors, HAUG is also a family company with global operations.
In the compressor technology sector, HAUG is well-known as a specialist in state of the art oil-free and gas-tight piston compressors for compression of air and a variety of gases.
The HAUG brand will be retained as part of Sauer Compressors. The previous managing director, Beat Frefel, will continue in his position. Franck Lallart, managing director of Girodin-Sauer SAS, will be his co-director. The St. Gallen site in Switzerland will be developed as a centre of expertise for oil-free technology within Sauer Compressors.
This partnership holds significant growth potential and profit opportunities for both companies. HAUG's oil-free compressors, which are held in such high regard around the world, are the perfect complement to Sauer's established range of oil-lubricated compressors.
