History of Roots Systems

The company’s origins can be traced back to the 1930s when one of the early manufacturers of roots-type positive displacement blowers located near Stonehouse was designing and supplying blowers, particularly to the gas industry.

Following a major re-organisation, a team of engineers with many years’ experience in blower design and application formed Roots Systems in 1974 to meet the growing demands of the process industries. Based on original proven designs and with new innovative ideas the company was soon supplying blowers to many process industries and also to other markets such as waste-water treatment and pneumatic conveying.

In June 1984 Roots Systems was purchased by Rotolok Holdings Ltd and, whilst continuing to operate independently, now has the substantial financial backing of this large engineering group of companies.
