In 1992 NEUMAN & ESSER founded NEUMAN & ESSER USA, Inc. in Houston, Texas, to better cater to the North American, Central American and Caribbean markets. NEA USA is responsible for new compressor sales, modernization and all associated engineering. Its sister company, NEAC Compressor Service USA, Inc., which was incorporated in 1992 in Franklin, PA, as a joint venture with Atlas Copco for maintaining Chicago Pneumatic compressors, is in charge of all aftermarket related activities e.g. parts, service, start-up, commissioning, overhauls and repairs. Both companies are members of the German based NEUMAN & ESSER founded in 1830, one of the world leading OEMs for lubricated and non-lubricated vertical, V-type and horizontal API 618 compressors in a range of 20 to 40,000 hp and 1 to 8 throws. Right from the beginning the decision to combine a "Made in Germany" compressor with "Made in the USA" auxiliary equipment, engineering and aftermarket support proved to be very successful. Their customer base includes refineries, chemical & petrochemical plants, the food and beverage industry, and to a large extent, specialty reciprocating compressor applications.

In April 2008 NEA USA, Inc. and NEAC Compressor Service USA, Inc. took another major step by constructing their own fit-to-suit new facility in Katy, Texas. This facility consists of a two-story 16,000 SF (1,500 m2) office building which accommodates Sales, Engineering, CAD, Purchasing, Service & Parts, a Training Center, as well as the administration of both companies. The attached 20,000 SF (1,800 m2) warehouse/workshop (equipped with a 20 ton crane) allows for the storage of critical wear and capital spare parts and also for compressor repairs. Like the previously inaugurated new facility of NEA América do Sul in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, the new NEA USA building will also allow for future growth. It provides better and faster US based support for the significantly growing fleet of compressors and guarantees a higher degree of customer satisfaction for all the NEA owned compressor brands e.g. Chicago Pneumatic, Linde, KSB, Borsig, Demag to name the major ones for this market. The inauguration of the new facility will be celebrated with a Customer Compressor Day on Dec. 3rd, 2008 presenting news and recent technical developments in reciprocating compressors combined with discussion groups and hands-on compressor experiences.
