Building on its long tradition of manufacturing compressor systems in Germany since 1923, ALMiG appointed Glenco as the exclusive Australian distributor for its extensive range of oil-free and oil-lubricated screw compressors. This has provided Glenco with a greatly expanded range of compressor products that can be factory custom-built to order in accordance with end users’ specific requirements across a broad range of applications.
Westinghouse and Puma seek to expand market share
Glenco was excited to announce new partnerships with some of the most high profile names in the power equipment market – Westinghouse and Puma. Glenco partnered with Westinghouse to offer their portable power products commencing with a new range of portable generators offering start-of-the-art performance, reliability and safety. Following closely and equally as exciting was our renewed partnership with Puma and we were very pleased to be launching their all-new and exclusive range of high quality air compressors.
Glenco relocates to purpose-built facility
To better accommodate our continued growth and support our expanding dealer network, Glenco relocated to a much larger purpose-built facility. Head Office is now home to our administration, sales and technical support divisions as well as housing our customised workshop, R&D and distribution facilities. With better access to transport corridors, prompt delivery of products and spare parts is our promise.
Dynamic growth of Senator brand compressed air products
Building on the company’s historical growth that primarily focussed on the premium Airmac, Fusheng and FS-Curtis products, Glenco also concurrently expanded its own dynamic range of Senator brand compressed air products. These include reciprocating and rotary screw air compressor sets that offer unsurpassed affordability and value for money. Our four brands – Airmac, Fusheng, FS-Curtis and Senator – provide solutions for all compressed air applications.
Appointment as exclusive Australian distributor for FS-Curtis screw air compressors
Glenco was appointed as the exclusive Australian distributor of Fusheng’s screw air compressors marketed under the FS-Curtis brand. This heralded the start of exponential growth in our product range which now included stationary electric and portable diesel screw air compressor sets.
New player in the compressed air storage and treatment market
Glenco entered the specialized compressed air storage and treatment market by introducing a range of Fusheng refrigerant dryers and vertical air receivers that have since become immensely popular in Australia.
Glenco responds to market demand for increased quality and reduced costs
Market demand for better value compressor products forced most competitors to sacrifice quality to attain lower costs. In stark contrast, Glenco selected the more difficult option to pursue higher quality across our product range whilst simultaneously reducing costs by relocating the bulk of our manufacturing operations abroad.
Glenco partnered closely with Fusheng, using their high-volume manufacturing facilities to replicate and subsequently improve our existing range of compressor products. Our loyal team of highly skilled technicians shifted its focus to pre-delivering each and every imported compressor set prior to sale using our extensive in-house inspection and testing processes. Our enhanced manufacturing capability enabled rapid growth and promoted sales of premium quality Airmac compressor products by partnering with prestigious new OEM customers
2002 – 2006
New factories cater for company expansion
During this period, Glenco relocated twice to increasingly larger premises to cater for its continued growth in both staff and products.
International recognition as exclusive Australian distributor for Fusheng reciprocating air compressors
Glenco’s outstanding performance was internationally recognized with its prestigious appointment as exclusive Australian distributor of Fusheng reciprocating air compressors. Fusheng is Asia’s largest air compressor manufacturer and is one of the world’s top 10.
1984 – 2000
Glenco first established and develops an enviable reputation
Glenco initially focussed on manufacturing premium quality reciprocating air compressor sets in Australia – an activity that remained at the heart of our business for 20 years. During this time, Glenco established an enviable reputation for manufacturing heavy duty reciprocating air compressor sets with its well-known brand names, Airmac and Binford.
