It is not just the era creates the history of the country. The country’s history is created by the people and their significant work, memorable achievements, important decisions and well-deserved victories. During the Soviet era, there were many industrial factories operating in Lithuania, which were based on the planned economy. Each era is important and significant. History demolishes certain things while for others simply gives the chance to survive. With the collapse of the current political system, most industries have lost their customers, their relevance and their importance. Only a small number of manufacturing companies were able to survive and adapt to economic changes in an independent country.
We are proud that ‘’Panevėžio Aurida’’ JSC is still an important and significant company in Lithuania and worldwide! Only thanks to the amazing workers, we remain one of the strongest manufacturers of car compressors. The essence of a strong factory is the courage and determination to reach the goals in unison!
Congratulations on the 16th of February – the Day of the Restoration of the State of Lithuania! Let’s stay strong and united in our common goals! May the Day of the Restoration of the State of Lithuania bring us together for new meaningful work!

With the permission of the authors of the article, we are sharing an excerpt of the publication where Mantas Klupšas, Deputy General Manager of ”Panevėžio Aurida” JSC, openly shares his thoughts on business peculiarities, successes, further aspirations and plans.
– Mantai, how would you recommend to choose the right compressor model?
The compressor is adapted to each vehicle and to the engine installed in it. Other buyers also choose for a higher performance compressor if their vehicles lack air. We are the only one manufacturer in the world of auto compressors who offer a 24-month warranty on our products.
– What you need to consider when buying a compressor?
The most important factors are quality, warranty, reliability and compressor parameters which should be laboratory tested and publicly declared.
– How to distinguish a counterfeit product from an original?
The passport – original document of compressor always should be presented. The date and serial number of the compressor name plate must match the data on the passport which is registered at the company. We provide a 24-month warranty from the date of manufacture. Another important aspect is the logo on the product and the company symbol – the letter A on castings, tables and etc.
– Why do consumers consider Lithuanian products more durable? Where is the secret?
The biggest advantage – over 60 years of experience. I do not want to brag, but I think we are the only one factory with such a long experience in auto compressor manufacturing and know-how. Also we are proud of our specialist experience.
– What are the goals of ‘’Panevežio Aurida’’ JSC company?
Design and manufacture only high quality, innovative and exclusive auto compressors. We are also constantly striving to increase the capacity of aluminum casting and metal machining processes. What is more, we strive to be a leader in the automotive industry and grow a loyal customer base.
On September 14-15,2019, the employees of UAB ‘‘Panevėžio Aurida‘‘ visited one of the most popular cities in Poland – Krakow. It is a city of kings, full of legends, enchanting with its majesty and extraordinary beauty. During our sightseeing tour we visited Krakow’s Old Town with one of the oldest universities in Europe and sacred architecture of stunning beauty. We came to Wawel Hill on which is the Royal Wawel Castle and the Gothic Cathedral of spectacular grandeur. Also during our trip we visited the Church of Mary, whose main decoration is a wooden carved altar created by Veit Stoss.
We spent the second day of the excursion at the “Wieliczka” salt mines. It is a world-famous tourist attraction. The salt mines have been working continuously since the 13th century. Nowadays, however, rather than being sourced for commercial purposes, the extracted salt is used for various other applications. Today’s Mine is a 2.5-kilometer-long excursion trail that runs through tunnels 64 to 135 meters underground. We also visited the underground museum, where we got acquainted with the history of old Krakow: fragments of the buildings of the medieval settlement, original relics discovered during excavations.
On September 8, 2019, the international competition “STIHL Savickas Classic 2019” took place during Panevėžys city birthday. UAB PANEVĖŽIO AURIDA is pleased to be a sponsor of this event.

All of the contestants had to overcome the weight lifting relay, carry 400 kg weights, roll the tires, do squats with 300 kg and move 180 kg of stones.
During the competition, the spectators could also see the relays prepared by our company. One of them – the 200 kg pallet loaded with our compressors, was forced to pull a certain length of time.
On September 2-6, 2019, the company participated in the 15th international exhibition for commercial vehicles “COMTRANS 2015” in Moscow (Russia).

The company has a research and development laboratory for testing, developing and analyzing new products.
