Gardner Denver, Inc., founded in 1993, but with a history going back to the 1850s, is a company that designs, manufactures, and globally markets engineered industrial machinery and related parts and services. Based in Wayne, Pennsylvania, it operates in three segments, Industrial Products Group, Energy and Infrastructure Group, and Thomas Group.[3]

The Industrial Products Group segment offers rotary screw, reciprocating, and sliding vane air and gas compressors; positive displacement, centrifugal, and side channel blowers; and vacuum pumps for use in manufacturing, transportation and general industry, and original equipment manufacturer (OEM) and engineered system applications. This segment also markets and services complementary ancillary products.

The Engineered Products Group segment designs, manufactures, markets, and services liquid-ring vacuum pumps, reciprocating pumps, and engineered systems for power generation, environmental, petrochemical, pulp and paper and industrial applications; pumps and fluid transfer equipment used primarily in oil and natural gas well drilling, servicing and production, and petrochemical and industrial applications. This Group's products also include loading arms, swivel joints, couplers, valves, fall protection and access equipment used to load and unload ships, tank trucks and rail cars.

The Thomas Group manufactures single-piece piston reciprocating, diaphragm and linear compressors and vacuum pumps, which are used in medical, environmental and laboratory applications.
