Manufacturing and packaging
We manufacture compressors in Oberwinterthur. Where feasible, we procure auxiliary equipment in the end user's country to provide a high local content. We continuously endeavor to increase our productivity in manufacturing and to reduce lead times. We have made substantial investments in modern CNC machines, providing a sound basis for the cost-efficient manufacture of our compressors.
We aim to satisfy our customers by cost-effective development, manufacture, marketing and maintenance of high quality products and services. Well-chosen people working to carefully conceived procedures ensure that Burckhardt Compression AG products and services meet defined requirements.
