Partners to Provide Quality, Local Valve and Packing Case Repairs for Reciprocating Compressors

Cook Compression is proud to announce its certification of three Authorised Service Partners for valve and packing case repairs: Kompresory Veselý, in the Czech Republic; Rudos Ruzomberok, in the Slovak Republic; and Runtime Engineering AB, in Sweden. These companies are the first such partners for Cook Compression in Europe.

Cook Compression applies its technical expertise, application knowledge and state-of-the-art product and material capabilities to improve reciprocating compressor performance around the globe. Through Authorised Service Partners, Cook Compression aims to make its expertise and quality service more readily available to reciprocating compressor end users throughout Europe.

Authorised Service Partners have passed a rigorous audit of their processes and equipment, are held to strict quality standards, and guarantee their work for warranty periods as established by Cook Compression. Service capabilities apply to any brand compressor valve or packing case. Further, each valve that leaves the partners’ facilities will be quality tested using a specially designed Cook Compression valve air test bench.

Kompresory Veselý has 25 years of compressor experience and a reputation for exceptional customer service. A major service provider for PET compressors in the Czech Republic and neighboring countries, Kompresory Veselý is also expanding its service into petrochemical and other industries. The company’s highly skilled, local staff provides high-quality service, emergency response, and turnkey management to keep compressors running at peak performance.

Rudos was established in 1996 in the field of railway brake compressor repair and today continues to provide comprehensive solutions to that market as well as biogas applications. Rudos combines the most up-to-date technologies with a skilled team to be a leader in the field of compressed air, alternative energy, treatment plant technology, and rolling stock. With 18 technicians working from three locations, the company provides flexible, reliable service to more than 500 clients in Slovakia.

Runtime Engineering is a newly formed unit of the Erinova Group dedicated to reciprocating compressor and industrial fan spare parts and services in the Scandinavian market. Runtime Engineering draws on the expertise of its sister companies, the Sweden-based Protoma and MLT. Protoma, founded in 1994, specializes in industrial sealing solutions such as mechanical seals, packings, gaskets, compensators and hydraulic seals. MLT, founded in 1988, focuses on industrial measurement technology, including condition monitoring, laser alignment, balancing and 3D scanning. Altogether, Erinova Group has 60 employees providing trusted products, service and customer training.

“By putting Cook Compression’s long experience in providing OEM-quality reciprocating compressor components behind the trusted regional positions of these partners, we can offer reciprocating compressor end users a higher standard of service,” said Dean Lewis, Cook Compression VP Aftermarket, Europe & Russia. “This mutually supportive relationship takes the best of our companies and puts it to work for our customers.”
