Kaeser compressors

Elevated Industrial Solutions has been distributing Kaeser compressor products since the 1980s in various locations – Michigan, Ohio, and South Carolina. We began based on a partnership with a premier brand – Kaeser.

We provide information about ourselves regularly. But … how much do you know about Kaeser?

How is Kaeser pronounced?

If you’re new to Kaeser and you’re in the U.S., chances are pretty good you wouldn’t know how to say it correctly. The company and the compressor brand are pronounced: kay·zr. (It rhymes with laser.)

Yes, it’s German.

History of Kaeser

Carl Kaeser Sr. started the company as a machine workshop in Germany in 1919. Originally, the company was created to manufacture spare parts for cars, especially gears. Over the years it transformed a few times to manufacture more things, including air compressors.

The 1970s was a productive decade for Kaeser. In 1978, Kaeser expanded globally, starting in Switzerland. The 70s was also when they created their rotary screw air compressor. With its reputation for German engineering, soon the company expanded into the U.S. In 1982, Kaeser opened up its headquarters in Fredericksburg, Virginia. It also quickly expanded products with the popularity of its air compressors, known as the gold standard in industrial plants and facilities.

Today, Kaeser is in Europe and North America, but also Asia, Africa, South America, and Australia. That’s nearly every continent!

Kaeser provides a variety of air compressor options

Even among industrial facilities, different companies need different air compressors. Kaeser makes a variety to handle power, environment, and more. They even provide mobile options, oil-free, and other equipment to make your compressed air system more effective and efficient.

Elevated partners with you and Kaeser

We’re proud of our long partnership with Kaeser and are an authorized dealer in Northern and Southern Ohio (from Toledo to Cincinnati), Michigan, and South Carolina. We can recommend equipment to make your facility more efficient and effective while potentially offering energy rebates. Plus, we can service every major brand of compressor, including but not limited to Kaeser. We’re even available for scheduled preventive maintenance as well as 24 x 7 for emergencies.
