SolvAir – a strong partner for your business

Among the many events happening at Solvair in recent months, one certainly deserves closer attention - the modernization of a washing line in Slovakia.

This was a case where you could see clearly benefits of Paxton blowers compared to energy inefficient compressed air solutions. Our customer had been facing high energy costs by running a complex drying system connected to several large compressors without paying heed to our advice.

Then out of the blue a request came for the complete modernization of the existing production line along with the drying system.

This task proved very challenging and stretched our capabilities to the full. And not surprisingly, the delivery schedule pushed us hard. Thanks to a strong bond between ourselves, Paxton, and the local distributor JVB Engineering, we delivered a substantial number of blowers to the customer in very short period of time and guaranteed every single blower had undergone series of thorough tests.

This project turned out from a very urgent request into a totally successful, tremendous achievement.
