Situated in Brussels and spread over 400 sq m, the workplace will house over 20 people and feature training rooms and offices designed to build collaboration and foster innovation, in line with the ELGi values, according to the company.

Speaking at the inauguration, Dr Jairam Varadaraj, CEO, Elgi Equipments said, “We are proud of what we have built at ELGi. Over the years, our definition of Always Better has ensured we are focused on always being the customer’s choice. With this goal in view, we have concentrated on developing world-class products with the best life cycle cost (LCC). We have guaranteed the best in industry uptime. We have reaffirmed our commitment to reliability by providing customers with robust warranty and we have driven cost leadership through technology and innovation. All of this has resulted in us witnessing significant success in the US, the world’s second largest air compressor market, in a short span of five years. Europe is the third largest market worldwide and presents us with a huge opportunity. We are excited. And while we celebrate our successes, we will toast to the future.”

Chris Ringlstetter, President, ELGi Europe said, “We are proud to be part of a company that truly understands and believes in the importance of investing in its future. Over the years ELGi has been establishing itself across Europe, with a strong focus on diesel powered screw compressors (portables) and an expanding product portfolio of electric powered screw compressors (stationary). We will continue to evolve and grow our pan-European presence substantially, while expanding our existing channel footprint. While we are confident we have a strong leadership team in the region, we are now focusing on building our sales and service teams. Europe is a mature market, but we have quickly come to realise that the industry we serve and the distributors we choose to partner with are excited about our investment and growth plans.”
