Kompressor, German for supercharger, is a badge found on Mercedes-Benz marques. The badge is not widely used by other motor manufacturers - although the name "Kompressor", supercharger, is on some Volkswagen Golf.
The first supercharged Mercedes was developed in 1921 by a Daimler-Benz team with assistance from Ferdinand Porsche. Mercedes became the first manufacturer to install superchargers on some production models. The designation "K" on Mercedes usually means "Kompact" but can mean "Kompressor".
