WHO WE ARE
As early as 1903 Elmo was granted the Imperial Patent for the world’s first liquid ring vacuum pump; just three years later a smaller Elmo vacuum pump was used in Germany’s first vacuum cleaner. The first side channel blower was introduced in 1963 and revolutionized the vacuum and pressure market. The emphasis on designing and building the highest quality machines and providing engineering support of outstanding professionalism has been the trademark of Elmo. After the turn of the millenium and its spin-off from Siemens, Elmo merged with Nash Industries, a former US competitor, to form nash_elmo.
Elmo Rietschle specializes in high-quality blower, vacuum and pressure technologies. These solutions help to reduce energy consumption, improve reliability and up-time, eliminate pollution and provide cost savings. The brand is leading the market in the plastics industry worldwide but also has a strong footprint in the food and beverage, general manufacturing, green technology, and life sciences and laboratories markets. Other key applications include handling, pneumatic conveying and pick and place solutions for general manufacturing purposes.
