Railway-News: So, could you tell me about Dürr Technik?
Can Bora: Dürr Technik is a low-volume specialist manufacturer of oil-free, customisable air compressors. The company began life in Germany in the 1940s making dental tools and over the years has expanded to support a much wider range of industries.
We were the first company to bring out an oil-free compressor, and continue to invest in innovation in order to offer our customers products they can’t find anywhere else.
Just under a decade ago, we purchased a main air compressor company in France which had extensive experience fitting these to trains. We added this knowledge to our own to develop a new oil-free main air compressor perfectly suited for today’s rail industry where sustainability is key
