About Ro-Flo Compressors


The History of Ro-Flo Compressors

In 1930, Allis Chalmers created the Ro-Flo Compressor. Originally developed as a plant air compressor, Ro-Flo later became recognized as a world leader for compressing wet and sour gases.

The Product Becomes the Company

Over the years, Allis Chalmers’ compressor products changed hands a few times, and the Ro-Flo sliding vane technology found itself owned by a Fortune 500 company. Several of the Ro-Flo engineers thought the product line was being held back by the processes and protocols of the large corporate structure. So, in 2007, those engineers bought the technology and started the ‘Ro-Flo Compressors’ company. A smaller, more flexible and responsive organization.
