ELGi becomes the choice of France’s leading winery

ELGi Compressors Europe, a subsidiary of Elgi Equipments Limited, one of the world’s leading air compressor manufacturers, announced recently about the installation of the second AB ‘Always Better’ Series oil-free screw air compressor at Château Ollieux Romanis, a leading producer of premium organic wine, in the French Languedoc region.

The AB Series unit will support the nitrogen blanketing and bottling of the wine. With a low lifecycle cost, high reliability, consistent air quality, and better return on investment, the ELGi AB Series delivers unmatched air quality in line with the international standards and compliance norms ensuring zero traces of microbial contaminants.

Founded in 1868, Ollieux Romanis is one of the largest privately owned wineries in the Corbières, spanning 130 hectares.  Wine has been produced on the lands around Château Ollieux Romanis since the 11th century and in the late 1990s, the family-owned vineyard began implementing organic production methods. The choice of two ELGi AB Series oil-free compressors is aligned with the vineyard’s goals to improve the sustainability of their processes.

For over 60 years, ELGi has developed world-class products with best-in-class lifecycle costs, resulting in higher uptime for the customer. In recognition of this, ELGi is the first globally established industrial air compressor manufacturer to be awarded the Deming Prize for excellence in Total Quality Management in over six decades.
