Elgi Equipments acquires Pulford Air and Gas; makes a strategic entry into the Australian market


Elgi Equipments, one of India’s leading air-compressor manufacturers, has announced its 100% acquisition of FR Pulford & Son Pty Ltd, along with its wholly-owned subsidiary Advanced Air Compressors Pty Ltd, doing business as Pulford Air and Gas, based in Sydney, Australia. This acquisition was completed on July 31, 2018.
Elgi Equipments is currently on a business mission of becoming a leading player in the global air-compressor business by 2027. This strategic acquisition made by ELGi is, in fact, a significant step that the company has made in Australia to expand its footprint in the whole region. Through this acquisition, ELGi gains access to a national pool of customers to grow sales and service in Australia. Pulford is one of the largest distributors of industrial compressors in Australia and has been in the business for nearly 100 years. ELGi will gain 100% of the shareholding and control of Pulford.
Dr Jairam Varadaraj, MD, Elgi Equipments, said on the occasion, “Today is a momentous day in ELGi’s and Pulford’s history. It is the integration of two customer-centric organisations with the intent of gaining a leadership position in the Australian compressed air market.”
