A History of Global Company Success
BAUER KOMPRESSOREN can look back on more than a century of machine-building experience. Johann Bauer, blacksmith in Arnsdorf (Bavaria), established "Agricultural Machines Works" in 1888. In 1946 the BAUER Company started building compressors.
Today, BAUER is firmly established as a market leader in the high pressure sector. We pride ourselves on having contributed more to the development of breathing air compressors than any other company.
