Atlas Copco Compressors in Ireland is to hold a full programme of staff and customer events to celebrate its 50th year of operation throughout the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. The anniversary year will be celebrated with a range of product campaigns, customer promotions and staff events, conducted by a 30-strong team of technical sales, service and support staff who are closely engaged with meeting customers’ application needs.
Commenting on the company’s commitment and economic contribution to Irish industry, Sean Fairest, Country Manager for Compressor Technique, says: “The alliance of productivity and efficiency in manufacturing has been crucial to Ireland’s continuing economic growth. Under the company’s guiding principle of promoting sustainable productivity, Atlas Copco has sought to support Ireland’s industrial resurgence with an extensive portfolio of compressor equipment for a broad spectrum of applications, while providing trusted advice and ongoing services to ensure that efficiency and performance are fully optimised in the long term.”
As the largest supplier of compressed air products and services in Ireland, Atlas Copco operates facilities in Dublin, Cork and Lisburn, including a fully equipped compressor engineering workshop serving the needs of major players in all market sectors, including the major players in pharmaceutical, electronic and dairy products.
Emmett Loftus – Maintenance Superintendent at Hollister ULC, a global healthcare products manufacturer located in Ballina, Co Mayo and a long-standing customer of Atlas Copco – says: “A reliable supply of high-quality oil-free compressed air is essential to our production processes. Over the many years of our association, we have been able to rely on the quality and continuity of equipment performance and every aspect of Atlas Copco’s sales and aftermarket services with complete confidence.”
Atlas Copco’s mainstream activity in the west of the country has been assisted by the appointment of C&L Industrial Ltd, based in Galway as distributor for Industrial Air compressors, Quality Air products and spare parts.
Much of the company’s continuing sales success and sustained profitability is attributable to the introduction of innovative, energy-efficient products such as the GA VSD+ range of workplace compressors, capable of reducing energy consumption by up to 50 per cent by matching air output to process demand. There is increasing awareness too of the contribution to aeration processes within industrial and municipal waste water plants made by introducing the ZS range of screw blowers to replace traditional lobe technology equipment. These products are also supported by Atlas Copco’s SmartLink monitoring technology which brings further peace of mind to its many customers.
The 50th anniversary year coincides with the completion of Sean Fairest’s first year as Country Manager in Ireland, having previously served as Vice President of Marketing for Compressor Technique Service at Atlas Copco’s Airpower division in Antwerp, Belgium.
