ELGi Compressors Europe have had the opportunity to support the Italian Red Cross with an urgent compressed air requirement. The subsidiary of ELGi Equipments Limited responded swiftly and comprehensively with a charitable contribution of an air compressor package for one of Italy’s Red Cross logistic hubs serving the Turin area. 

Michele Belmondo, Site Manager at the Red Cross Bussoleno, said “The COVID emergency has placed pressure on all people and equipment. We contacted ELGi and other companies asking if they could support us with a new air compressor to enhance our operational capacity at the logistics centre. ELGi responded immediately, visited our Centre, analysed our compressed air needs and within days, provided not just an air compressor, but a complete system including a tank and dryer.”

The Red Cross Polo Logistica Valle di Susa site is a critical logistics hub that serves the Greater Turin area with emergency services, medicine delivery, transport and meal support, for vulnerable people. The compressed air system provided by ELGi is used to power tools. It is also used to support the maintenance of Red Cross vehicles as they support the Italian Health and Emergency services and make critical medical deliveries as part of the country’s COVID-19 response.

 

High reliability, ease of maintenance, small footprint

Graziano Dal Tio, Regional Manager, ELGi Southern Europe, said “When the frontline of Italy’s health services reached out to us during the COVID-19 emergency, asking for urgent help – we did not hesitate for a moment. After the initial visit, we were able to specify, deliver and install an EN Series Air Station in a matter of days. The offered air station comprised of a receiver and fridge dryer which made it plug and play, enabling high reliability, ease of maintenance and a small footprint. Definitely an ideal compressed air system solution for the Red Cross - Polo Logistico Centre.”

Chris Ringlstetter, President at ELGi Europe, said “At ELGi Compressors Europe, we aspire to be ‘Always Better’ in everything we do – and this includes building long-lasting partnerships with our employees, customers, channel partners and the local communities where we operate. We are grateful for the opportunity to support the Italian Red Cross in its tireless efforts with caring for the local community during these challenging times.”

ELGi's EN series screw compressors (2.2 – 45KW) are designed to encapsulate all functional components including a screw compressor element within a common housing. With its small footprint, high reliability and low maintenance requirements, these compressors are ideal for a wide variety of industrial applications where size, efficiency and cost, matter.
