Our History

Excellence in compressor design and manufacturing since 1962.

For over 60 years, FS-Elliott has served as a leader in the industry, manufacturing air and gas compressors that incorporate the latest aerodynamic and control system technologies to ensure optimum performance. We developed the first oil-free, integrally geared, multi-stage, centrifugal air compressor in 1962. This innovation grew into the PAP Plus product line that we continue to sell and manufacture today.

In the late 1990’s we formed a joint venture with our longtime partner, Fusheng Industrial Co., Ltd., to build a packaging facility in Shanghai, China, which resulted in the PAP Plus product line becoming a leader in the China market. Fusheng, a multi-faceted manufacturer of reciprocating and screw-type compressors for air and refrigeration applications, is a privately held company based in Taipei, Taiwan. 

In October of 2003, Fusheng acquired the PAP Plus product line, creating FS-Elliott Co., LLC. In 2005, FS-Elliott purchased two facilities in Export, Pennsylvania USA to establish an independent headquarters for compressor design, manufacturing, and service. Several new, state-of-the-art machine tools were installed, and a new test facility was constructed to modernize processes for improving quality and reducing costs. 

Today FS-Elliott is a world-class manufacturer focused on producing reliable and energy-efficient air solutions. As a member of the Fusheng family, we are committed to total customer satisfaction.
