ELGi partners with the Italian Red Cross to maintain COVID-19 response vehicles

22 July, 2021

ELGi Compressors Europe, a subsidiary of ELGi Equipments Ltd, is supporting the Italian Red Cross with an urgent compressed air requirement. ELGi Europe responded swiftly with a charitable contribution of an air compressor package for one of Italy’s Red Cross logistic hubs serving the Turin area.

Michele Belmondo, site manager at the Red Cross Bussoleno, comments: “The COVID emergency has placed pressure on all people and equipment. We contacted ELGi and other companies asking if they could support us with a new air compressor to enhance our operational capacity at the logistics centre. ELGi responded immediately, visited our centre, analysed our compressed air needs and within days, provided not just an air compressor, but a complete system including a tank and dryer.”

Critical logistics hub

The Red Cross Polo Logistica Valle di Susa site is a critical logistics hub that serves the Greater Turin area with emergency services, medicine delivery, transport and meal support, for vulnerable people. The compressed air system provided by ELGi is used to power tools. It is also used to support the maintenance of Red Cross vehicles as they support the Italian Health and Emergency services and make critical medical deliveries as part of the country’s COVID-19 response.

Graziano Dal Tio, Regional Manager, ELGi Southern Europe, says: “When the frontline of Italy’s health services reachedout to us during the COVID-19 emergency, asking for urgent help – we did not hesitate for a moment. After the initial visit, we were able to specify, deliver and install an EN Series Air Station in a matter of days. The offered air station comprised of a receiver and fridge dryer which made it plug and play, enabling high reliability, ease of maintenance and a small footprint. Definitely an ideal compressed air system solution for the Red Cross – Polo Logistico Centre.”

Challenging times

Chris Ringlstetter, president at ELGi Europe, adds: “At ELGi Compressors Europe, we aspire to be ‘Always Better’ in everything we do – and this includes building long-lasting partnerships with our employees, customers, channel partners and the local communities where we operate. We are grateful for the opportunity to support the Italian Red Cross in its tireless efforts with caring for the local community during these challenging times.”
