ELGi Partners Italian Red Cross to Maintain Critical COVID-19 Response Vehicles

ELGi Compressors Europe (subsidiary of Elgi Equipments Ltd), partners with Italian Red Cross to meet an urgent compressed air demand. In line with the company’s corporate philanthropic approach, ELGi Europe responded with a charitable contribution of an air compressor package for one of Italy’s Red Cross logistic hubs. The Red Cross Polo Logistica Valle di Susa site is a critical logistics hub that provides emergency services, medicine delivery, transport, and meal support, for vulnerable people in the Greater Turin region.

The EN Series compressed air system provided by the company is used to power tools. With its small footprint, high reliability and low maintenance requirements, these compressors are ideal for a wide range of industrial applications where size, efficiency, and cost are important. It is also used to support the maintenance of Red Cross logistics fleet / vehicles, which support the Italian Health and Emergency services and make essential medical deliveries as part of the country’s COVID-19 response.

On the company’s extended support amidst the pandemic to enhance operational capacity at the logistic centre, Michele Belmondo, Site Manager, Red Cross Bussoleno, said “ELGi responded immediately, visited our Centre, analysed our compressed air needs and within days, provided not just an air compressor, but a complete system including a tank and dryer.”

Responding with a solution to the frontline of Italy’s health services during the COVID-19 emergency, Graziano Dal Tio, Regional Manager, ELGi Southern Europe, asserted, “After the initial visit, we were able to specify, deliver and install an EN Series Air Station in a matter of days. The offered air station comprised of a receiver and fridge dryer which made it plug and play, enabling high reliability, ease of maintenance and a small footprint. Definitely an ideal compressed air system solution for the Red Cross - Polo Logistico Centre.”

Expressing gratitude for the opportunity to support the Italian Red Cross for the local community during the challenging times, Chris Ringlstetter, President, ELGi Europe, added, “At ELGi Compressors Europe, we aspire to be ‘Always Better’ in everything we do – and this includes building long-lasting partnerships with our employees, customers, channel partners and the local communities where we operate.”
