BOGE Compressors – celebrating 114 years in business

More than 100 years since the founding of BOGE Compressors, the company’s heritage of high-quality German manufacturing is making its mark around the globe.

From humble beginnings more than 114 years ago, Mr Otto Boge started his business. As the world changed and cars become the norm, the business evolved from door openers to air pumps for petrol stations and then stand-alone air compressors. Today, BOGE proudly remains a family-owned company and is a global entity spanning across many countries.

The letters B.O.G.E also stands for “Best of German Engineering” and the company prides itself in that heritage continuing to manufacture at their main plant, based in Bielefeld. The second large plant is based near Dresden, and this is where BOGE manufacture their own high efficiency screws for the air ends that they use in their various models of compressors.

Customers still regard “Made in Germany” as a significant point of difference when it comes to buying a compressor. Quality and reliability are critical when a business is reliant on compressed air for their production. That is why BOGE concentrate their efforts on the customer, recognising them as the most important link in the production process.

The BOGE product portfolio has expanded with time and as well as oil injected screw compressors the company is also at the forefront of oil free screw compressors, high pressure piston compressors and 40bar boosters, nitrogen and oxygen generators, refrigerated air dryers and special need desiccant dryers, filtration and all ancillary equipment.

BOGE oil free scroll compressors are also now in high demand in the market especially in the medical sector. Quiet, with almost no vibration, the BOGE scroll compressor has an integrated controller allowing maximum flexibility to control multiple units.
