Integrated Air Solutions leads South African industry as the exclusive regional sales and service partner for ELGi and FS-Elliott and as the local service agent for ABC Compressors. The compressed air system specialist will showcase these top tier air compressor brands at this year’s KZN Industrial Technology Exhibition from 18 to 20 July.
“As South Africa’s second largest industrial hub next to Gauteng, Kwa-Zulu Natal (KZN) is a very important and lucrative market for us,” says Wayne Jacobs, Managing Director of Integrated Air Solutions. “We have been active in the region for several years, providing our full product, service and after-market compressed air solutions to a host of sectors including cement, packaging, beverages, steel, and ports & harbours.”
While KZN is an ongoing success story for Integrated Air Solutions, Wayne says that the region holds loads of untapped potential in the compressed air space. “We have a solid installed base of the ELGi medium pressure electric and diesel-driven compressors and our partnership with Spanish manufacturer, ABC Compressors, has unlocked new opportunities for us in the high pressure compressed air market segments.”
The ABC oil-free machines produce high pressure compressed air to blowing equipment for the manufacture of PET bottles at 40 bar pressure.” Wayne explains that while ABC holds substantial market share in South Africa’s beverage and packaging manufacturing sectors, only half of this market was previously being serviced by ABC. “As the newly appointed local service agent, we are now able to offer ABC customers service, maintenance, parts and spares as well as machine upgrades of OEM standard.”
Wayne further points out that they are able to support those ABC customers who also have medium air pressure requirements with FS-Elliott machines as well as ELGi premium electric and diesel-driven industrial screw compressors.
Integrated Air Solutions is expanding the ELGi range with the addition of a piston compressor which will be introduced at the KZN Technology Exhibition. This new compact 2.2 – 11kW ELGi LD Series presents an innovation in piston air compressor technology and caters to all industries that demand high performance, low noise, and easy maintenance from their air compressors.
Integrated Air Solutions will display a few of their smaller ELGi and FS Elliott air compressors alongside AIRCOM piping and fitting solutions on their show stand (#C12A). Visitors to the exhibition are invited to meet Integrated Air Solutions’ specialist KZN team who will be on hand to share knowledge and advice on the company’s comprehensive compressed air solutions portfolio.”
