For more than 145 years, Ingersoll Rand has provided a wide range of technologically advanced, highly reliable, and low-maintenance air compressors, Area Sales Leader Jeffrey Esparrago said. In fact, he and his colleagues feel that compressed long ago joined electricity, gas and water as the “fourth utility.”

“We provide compressed air equipment and services to our customers that impact their productivity, reliability and efficiency,” Esparrago said. Compressed air is used in countless industries, he added, and during the early months of the pandemic, Ingersoll Rand’s compression technologies supported many sectors deemed essential including medical facilities, food production, power plants, the manufacturing of critical products like N-95 masks, and more.

Globally, Ingersoll Rand has high standards beyond reputable products and services, Esparrago said, including a focus on diversity, equity and inclusion as well as environmental responsibility. 

“We have a goal to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions by 60%, and greater than 15% greenhouse emissions from our products that we actually produce, by 2030,” he said. 

Ingersoll Rand is a local leader in its sector, Esparrago said, but his team doesn’t take that for granted. They strive to build trust with every customer and to be a valued partner and community supporter.

“We have great products and services, but the reason customers continue to work with Ingersoll Rand is the people and the culture,” he said. “We may be a large company, but we have a strong presence in the Omaha market. The team is local and would not be successful without being part of the community.
