Kaeser Compressors Headquarters Earns ENERGY STAR Label

Kaeser Compressors, Inc. announced its U.S. headquarters building has earned the ENERGY STAR Label. Kaeser became an ENERGY STAR Partner in 2009, and its headquarters in Fredericksburg, Va., earned the label this year with a rating of 83 – well above the national average and exceeding ENERGY STAR requirements.
“We were actively engaged in energy reduction long before it was popular. For decades, we have been helping our customers save energy by optimizing – and where possible reducing – their compressed air consumption,” said Frank Mueller, president of Kaeser Compressors. “So it only makes sense that as one of the very first industrial manufacturers to establish an ISO14001 Environmental Program, we are reducing our own energy footprint and taking advantage of today’s energy efficient building technologies.”
Last year, an expansion added 17,500 sq. ft – nearly doubling the office space. Matt McCorkle, staff engineer and contact for information on the building’s designation, outlined some the key features: “The new section includes several energy-saving elements such as a reflective TPO Roof, an underfloor-air-distribution system and high-efficiency lighting fixtures. The existing building also saw recent improvements with projects including a warehouse lighting retrofit and upgrades to the HVAC control system.”
The 120,000-square-foot facility supports a national network of factory-trained representatives for all  Kaeser’s product lines offering rotary screw air compressors, oil-less reciprocating compressors, rotary lobe blowers, clean air treatment equipment, portable compressors and air system controls.
