In its 160 year history, spanning from 1859 to 2019, Gardner Denver (www.gardnerdenver.com) has experienced many twists and turns. As the world’s leading manufacturer of mission-critical flow control and compression equipment, and associated aftermarket parts, consumables and services, Gardner Denver reached a key milestone on May 12, 2017; being the third IPO to land on the New York Stock Exchange. Over the past two years, Gardner Denver and its group of companies has focused on corporate social responsibility, technological innovation, and operational excellence to continue to support its customers, and further develop its presence in Australasia.
Three Business Divisions Supported by Leading Brands
In order to better support its customers across a range of diverse end markets, Gardner Denver has formed three key business divisions – the Industrials Group, Energy Group, and Medical Group.
Mainly serving general manufacturing, food processing, transportation, power generation, mining & construction, and environmental end markets; the Industrials Group is backed by world leading brands such as CompAir, Elmo Rietschle, Robuschi, Bellis & Morcom, Reavell, and Wittig. In early 2018, Gardner Denver was proud to welcome Runtech, DV Systems, and MP Pumps into our family of brands; all three of which complement our existing brands with a strong focus on blower and vacuum technologies.
The Energy Group’s key focus is to help its customers meet the world’s growing demand for energy. The Gardner Denver Brand, along with Nash, Garo, Hoffman & Lamson, and Emco Wheaton offer a range of safer, smarter and more sustainable solutions for customers across the entire energy spectrum: upstream, midstream and downstream.
Featuring Thomas, Welch, Tricontinent, ILS, and Zinsser Analytic, the Medical Group manufactures a range of WOB-L rocking piston, diaphragm, linear vacuum, and laboratory syringe pumps that are widely used in medical, environmental and laboratory analysis. From oxygen generators to gene sequencing equipment, Gardner Denver’s Medical group offers a mature, multi-brand line of pump solutions.
Innovative Solutions that Create Value for Industry and Society
Having developed a leading product portfolio of mission-critical flow control products, Gardner Denver continues to fulfill its commitment to corporate social responsibility by continually investing in not only technology, but also in the community. Clean drinking water is an important guarantee for life and health. In Uganda, one of the poorest countries in the world, drilling is the only way to obtain clean drinking water. By donating cutting edge technology, Gardner Denver has been able to help communities in Uganda drastically reduce well drilling time, from 3-4 days to a matter of hours.
Technology such as oil-free, two stage, regulated screw and magnetic bearing air compressors, blowers and vacuum pumps have also helped our customers dramatically reduce emissions and either minimize or eliminate contamination. Customers such as the Merck Group’s Performance Materials division, which develops and produces high-performance paints for luxury cars, rely on Gardner Denver’s products to the supply clean, high-quality air that meets their process demands.
With a focus on ‘intelligent’ and ‘smart’ technology, many industries are turning to manufacturers to develop products that help better plan, operate, and manage their processes. Gardner Denver has been at the forefront of the smart technology movement with its iConn intelligent IoT technology. By connecting equipment across product lines using iConn, Gardner Denver has helped customers achieve intelligent air management, extend machine working hours, and optimize aftermarket/spare parts replacement and service maintenance intervals.
Whether customers have a flow requirement as low as 10 cubic meters per hour, or as high as 100,000 cubic meters per hour, Gardner Denver’s extensive portfolio of products offers customers a wide range of innovative solutions. From wastewater treatment, medical, general manufacturing, drilling, or industrial cleaning, Gardner Denver focusses on creating value for its customers with streamlined business processes and a high performance management culture that allows the company to deliver increasingly advanced technologies and environmentally responsible products.
