About Tamturbo

The company and people behind the oil-free revolution.


Since the Sixties, Tampere region in Finland has been a birthplace of several compressor innovations – many of which involved Kimmo Laine, the grand old man of compressor technology and co-founder of Tamturbo. Together with Jaakko Säiläkivi, a world-renowned guru in high-speed technology, they shared a vision of an oil-free future. For that they founded Tamturbo in 2010.


Now, their vision has transformed into a worldwide success story – a company that develops, makes and markets oil-free air turbo compressors and OEM turbo units. Fast-growing Tamturbo leads the way into environmentally friendly compressed air with the lowest life cycle costs.


With their comprehensive range of experts, worldwide contact network and a strong local know-how to build on, Tamturbo values its people as well as their customers. They are fully committed to deliver solutions that bring the highest life cycle value to the customers.


The future looks bright for Tamturbo’s award-winning technology. Determined to change the way compressed air is produced, Tamturbo aims to become one of the major players in the industry by 2020. With a business model based in both Tamturbo-branded compressors and OEM partnerships and as well as services, they are well on their way to that goal.
