Safe SpA, an Italy-based subsidiary of Landi Renzo SpA that has focused on providing compressed natural gas (CNG) compression packages and related equipment for 40 years, has made inroads into the North American market by appointing Broadwind Energy as Safe's exclusive equipment packager and master distributor.
Illinois-based Broadwind has specialized in providing gears and gearing systems to the energy and infrastructure markets, mainly in the wind power; oil and gas; mining and steel industries.

Safe says it has installed more than 3,000 compressor systems worldwide. Now, Broadwind will package and distribute Safe's CNG equipment in the U.S., Canada and Mexico, as well as provide service and technical support in these regions.
‘Safe and their parent company Landi Renzo bring over 60 years of global CNG experience to the North American market, allowing the industry to accelerate technology advancements in natural gas fueling,’ says Peter Duprey, president and CEO of Broadwind Energy. ‘Together with Safe, we look forward to serving customers in this growing market.’
