Founded in 1905 as Nash Engineering, Gardner Denver Nash was created in September 2004, when Gardner Denver acquired nash_elmo Industries from Audax. nash_elmo resulted from the 2002 merger of The Nash Engineering Company, USA, and elmo vacuum technology GmbH, Germany, formerly a Siemens subsidiary. The combining of Nash, the leader in liquid ring vacuum pumps, with elmo, the leader in side channel blowers, created nash_elmo, a global leader in vacuum technology.
Today, as the Gardner Denver Nash, we provide improved global service and technical support for Nash liquid ring vacuum pumps, compressors and engineered systems, serving the chemical, petroleum, power, paper, mining, environmental, food, and wastewater treatment industries.
The Nash Division of Gardner Denver has manufacturing facilities in the China, Germany and Brazil and Engineered To Order (ETO) centers in Bentleyville, Pennsylvania, USA; Singapore; Sydney, Australia; Nuremberg, Germany and Assendelft, Netherlands. Our service centers are ISO 9001:2008 certified and can be found in North America; England, Germany, Sweden and the Netherlands; Australia, Singapore and Korea; Brazil; and South Africa. We also have distribution centers in North America, Netherlands, Singapore, Australia and Brazil, which stock parts and replacement pumps.
When it is apparent that dozens of solutions to the need for a vacuum system are potentially feasible, NASH engineers utilize their expertise to search out the best alternative. We investigate with our customers the economics of valuable product recovery. We take into account such environmental considerations as disposal of unwanted process carryover. We find ways to conserve power, water, and heat energy. We evaluate system arrangements, scheduled maintenance and service life. We analyze available ratios of first cost to operating costs, so that our customers can tailor those two different types of expenditures to their company’s financial objectives. In summary what we do is to supply ENGINEERED SYSTEMS designed to solve customer problems.
