BORSIG ZM Compression GmbH - Profile and Products

Johann Friedrich August Borsig founded BORSIG in 1837. Within 15 years the company had become one of the largest industrial manufacturers in Europe.

In 1842 the Zwickau mechanical engineering company (Zwickauer Maschinenfabrik) began manufacturing steam engines and pumps for hard coal mining. BORSIG expanded into compressor technology in 1857 followed almost half a century later by ZM in 1903.
