NOXERIOR looking forward to a new Chapter following Acquisition by NOVAIR.
NOXERIOR is pleased to announce that the French company NOVAIR recently became its new 100% owner, which has united two well-known manufacturers in the international industrial gas market with different, but very complementary, activities.
For nearly forty years, NOVAIR has been active in the field of designing and manufacturing of non-cryogenic on-site gas systems, including medical and industrial PSA oxygen & nitrogen generators, air and vacuum units, cylinder filling systems, air & gas boosters and compressors, as well as the design and installation of distribution pipeline systems for compressed gases.
Over the same period, NOXERIOR has specialized in on-site oxygen and nitrogen generators, with focus on the hollow-fibre membrane and the modular PSA technologies, as well as a strong competency in complex engineering projects for EPC customers.
“With the acquisition of NOXERIOR and its fourteen international patents and patent applications regarding modular PSA gas separation plants, NOVAIR not only has realized an important technology injection, but it also acquired knowledge and experience with many industrial applications for the on-site generation of nitrogen and oxygen”, comments Oscar de Groen, former owner of NOXERIOR and Managing Director for a transition period until the end of 2016.
Oscar de Groen has a long track record with non-cryogenic air separation systems. After an initial experience as market developer and afterwards as national product manager for on-site membrane nitrogen generators for an industrial gas company in Germany, he moved to Italy where he developed the company NOXERIOR from a small local workshop to an international supplier with an excellent reputation among all market players. “After more than eighteen years of experience with NOXERIOR, it was the right moment to accept the offer from NOVAIR for both the company and myself” added de Groen. “I prefer to leave the company and to concentrate on new professional challenges for my personal future in order to create the best possible condition for NOVAIR to integrate NOXERIOR in their existing organisation.”
