History of Roots Systems

The company’s origins can be traced back to the 1930s when one of the early manufacturers of rotary-lobe compressors 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 demand. Based on original proven designs and with new innovative ideas the company was soon supplying blowers to many process industries.
