Winterthur - Burckhardt Compression Holding AG has agreed a takeover of SPAN Maintenance and Service Co. Ltd. in Thailand with effect from April 1, 2023. In so doing, the international manufacturer of reciprocating compressors is expanding its business activities in Asia.

Burckhardt Compression from Winterthur is to acquire the Thai service partner organization SPAN Maintenance and Service Co. Ltd, further details of which can be found in a press release. The south-east Asian service partner is primarily active in the maintenance of rotating machinery and reciprocating compressors.

The partnership with Burckhardt Compression was actually first launched back in 2018. This focused on both the new installation and commissioning of reciprocating compressors as well as on the repair of compressor valves. In addition, the cooperation partners trained maintenance specialists. Alongside the acquisition of Thai capital shares and the personnel of SPAN Maintenance and Service, the subsidiary Burckhardt Compression (Thailand) Co. Ltd. has now been founded in Thailand. In so doing, the company’s footprint in the south-east Asian market will be strengthened. ww
