Atlas Copco Rental Italy Janssen Cilag
The Italian Salesman Andrea Giorgi was already in contact with the production site of Borgo San Michele to supply equipment for a planned maintenance of the compressor room. The solution included a 100% oil free electric compressor, as 100% oil free air is essential for drug production, with inverter and dryer integrated ZT160VSDFF. The rental project was planned but an issue occurred before the actual maintenance. Suddenly the compressor reserved for the customer was no longer available because it was involved in another project abroad. An immediate solution was crucial to keep the production process going. The Italian team set up an urgent transport: the compressor was delivered from the Rental European Headquarter in Boom (Belgium) to Janssen production plant on the expected delivery date despite bad weather conditions (all Europe was covered by the snow) with customer satisfaction. “Fast response, urgent delivery and prompt action to solve a problem: that is what we stand for as Atlas Copco Rental!” Andrea Giorgi, Atlas Copco Rental Italy. A special thanks goes to project referees of Janssen Cilag Mr. Berardino Benfante (Maintenance staff) and Project Manager Eng. Alessio Epifanio
