Enerflex Middle East LTD.
Enerflex MEA (Middle East & Africa), is a single source supplier of natural gas compression, processing, and power generation solutions. The corporate headquarters are in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Our regional head office for Enerflex MEA is located in Abu Dhabi, UAE. Enerflex was established in 1980, by P. John Aldred. Since then, Enerflex has grown to become the largest Canadian compressor supplier. Mr. Aldred’ s vison didn’t stop there, global was his aspiration for Enerflex. So in 1992, Gas Drive Systems Pty.
