Chicago Pneumatic expands compressor production in Europe

By Murray Pollok11 November 2013

Chicago Pneumatic is expanding production of portable compressors at its Antwerp facility in Belgium. The company said the move would allow it to meet increasing demand from Europe and improve delivery times.

Portable compressors are already made at Antwerp, but the additional production line will allow it to produce its entire compressor range for the region by the end of this year. It will also enable Chicago Pneumatic to produce custom-built units with additional built-in options, such as integrated after-cooler and water separator.

The Antwerp facility will now manufacture all the portable diesel compressors in the range, from 2.5 – 5.5 m³/min, as well as the larger CPS 11 and CPS 11-12 m³/min models, which are already made in Antwerp.

The company also produces portable compressors in Brazil, the US, India and China.

Wim Thijs, product marketing manager for portable compressors at Chicago Pneumatic, said: “This reflects our on-going commitment to the European portable compressor market and means we are now able to provide customers with portable air solutions that are made-to-order right in the heart of Europe.”
