Future-Proof Ser­vice Propositions

The arrival of your new compressor from Sperre marks the beginning of a lifelong relationship. Our main priority is to increase the life of your compressor for as long as your vessel is in operation. By offering predictive maintenance, spare part kits and innovative digital solutions we can deliver dependable air power for decades.

Our air products are designed to support various maintenance services, business models and future digital solutions enabling us to deliver dependable air power for decades to come.

Circular Value Chain.

Circularity is fundamental throughout our value chain and we ensure all our materials can be either repaired, reused, refurbished or recycled. Although Sperre has a 48-hour promise for service parts, we aim to encourage our customers to choose a more sustainable transportation method if their need for parts is less urgent.

Ensuring a long life span of our compressors is in the best interest of both Sperre, our customers and the environment. We have developed service intervals and spare part kits with instructions to ensure a long and economically sustainable product life for your compressor.

We support the global transition to a low carbon economy, and we take action throughout our complete value chain to reduce our carbon footprint.

There are efforts to reduce our own internal carbon footprint with the aim to have a net-zero environmental impact in the future. Our products are safe to use and we strive for a hazard-free environment in both internal and external operations.

Together with suppliers, we work to minimize the carbon footprint in packaging materials and shipment of inbound materials and goods.
