HERE TO STAY - Neuman & Esser




in USA


founded NEUMAN & ESSER USA, Inc. in Houston,

Texas, to better cater to the North American, Central

American and Caribbean markets. NEA USA is

responsible for new compressor sales, modernization

and all associated engineering. Its sister company,

NEAC Compressor Service USA, Inc.,

which was incorporated in 1992 in Franklin, PA, as

a joint venture with Atlas Copco for maintaining

Chicago Pneumatic compressors, is in charge of all

aftermarket related activities e.g. parts, service,

start-up, commissioning, overhauls and repairs.

Both companies are members of the German based

NEUMAN & ESSER founded in 1830, one of the

world leading OEMs for lubricated and non-lubricated

vertical, V-type and horizontal API 618 compressors

in a range of 20 to 40,000 hp and 1 to 8 throws.

Right from the beginning the decision to combine a

"Made in Germany" compressor with "Made in the USA"

auxiliary equipment, engineering and aftermarket support

proved to be very successful. Their customer base

includes refineries, chemical & petrochemical plants,

the food and beverage industry, and to a large extent,

specialty reciprocating compressor applications.

In April 2008 NEA USA, Inc. and NEAC Compressor

Service USA, Inc. took another major step by constructing

their own fit-to-suit new facility in Katy, Texas. This

facility consists of a two-story 16,000 SF (1,500 m 2 )

office building which accommodates Sales, Engineering,

CAD, Purchasing, Service & Parts, a Training

Center, as well as the administration of both companies.

The attached 20,000 SF (1,800 m 2 ) warehouse/workshop

(equipped with a 20 ton crane) allows for the

storage of critical wear and capital spare parts and also

for compressor repairs. Like the previously inaugurated

new facility of NEA América do Sul in Belo Horizonte,

Brazil, the new NEA USA building will also allow for

future growth. It provides better and faster US based

support for the significantly growing fleet of compressors

and guarantees a higher degree of customer satisfaction

for all the NEA owned compressor brands e.g.

Chicago Pneumatic, Linde, KSB, Borsig, Demag to

name the major ones for this market.

The inauguration of the new facility will be celebrated

with a Customer Compressor Day on Dec. 3 rd , 2008

presenting news and recent technical developments in

reciprocating compressors combined with discussion

groups and hands-on compressor experiences.
