History

Dresser-Rand has a history of leadership from the very beginnings of the energy industry.

Dresser-Rand is proud of its history and its continuing commitment to help clients improve their process efficiencies, meet increasingly stringent environmental regulations, and increase energy capacity worldwide, all while remaining focused on the environment, society, and governance.

Since the mid-1800s, our strengths, and those of our predecessors— Dresser-Clark, Ingersoll-Rand, Worthington, Turbodyne, and Terry — have focused on meeting the specialized needs of our clients. From early steam pumps, natural gas compressors and gas engines, to today’s advanced technologies including high-power, high-pressure compressors and turbines, Dresser-Rand has continuously evolved to meet the critical equipment requirements of the energy infrastructure.

Dresser-Rand Group, Inc. was formed in 2004 and became a publicly traded company in 2005. Since then, our business strategy has been to enhance our core capabilities; add new products, services, and technologies; and provide access to new markets.
