Chicago Pneumatic celebrates 110th anniversary with European launch for compressed air solutions
Antwerp, Belgium, March 22, 2011 - Founded in 1901, Chicago Pneumatic products helped build the Golden Gate Bridge and the Empire State Building and is now celebrating its 110th anniversary. This powerful brand has a proven reputation of quality design, innovation and operating efficiency in the automotive, industrial and construction industry. Chicago Pneumatic is already well-established in markets that include USA, Brazil, India and Russia. One of the core events this year is the European launch of the full compressed air product portfolio at the Hannover ComVac fair (Hall 26, booth 50).
Chicago Pneumatic also developed its new CPX refrigerant dryer to meet the demands for premium air quality in high-end equipment and process configurations. The new design combines proven components in a simple layout for easy servicing. The CPX can also lower energy consumption through the use of an intelligent automatic drain system.
In the professional piston range, Chicago Pneumatic will show its latest silenced canopy designs. These were developed to meet the demands of customers working in noisy environments.
“Chicago Pneumatic has a proud history of innovation,” says Luis Clement, Vice President of Chicago Pneumatic Tools. “The company has a long list of ‘firsts’ to its name, from developing the pioneering Simplate valve in 1912 to developing torque-limiting pneumatic wrenches in the 1950s. It is the association of Chicago Pneumatic with rugged and reliable equipment that remains key to the company’s growth and success. This brand is definitely set to see robust growth across all European markets.”
