Airia Compressed Air Solutions, based in Romsey, Hampshire, has been appointed as an authorised premier distributor for Atlas Copco's range of energy-efficient industrial air compressors, rough vacuum pumps, nitrogen generators, quality air products and spare parts in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.

Becoming an Atlas Copco premier distributor represents the latest major milestone in Airia Compressed Air Solutions’ progress, but Managing Director Paul Brewer has no intention of letting the company rest on its laurels:

“ Our commercial success and growth to date result from our focus on providing customers with greater efficiency and productivity, and this new partnership expands our offering to include compressed air and vacuum equipment that can further enhance their performance and reliability, and help reduce installation, running and maintenance costs. ”

Airia Compressed Air Solutions’ appointment as an Atlas Copco premier distributor gives the company access to the GX and GA ranges of rotary screw stationary compressors including VSD and VSD+ variants, scroll and piston compressors, rough vacuum pumps, nitrogen generators, as well as compressed air treatment equipment, pipework and accessories.

In addition, the company provides a wide range of value added services to its customers including preventative maintenance, spare parts, repairs and reconditioning, air audits, air leak detection and air quality testing, and operates a 24/7 emergency callout service.

Formed in 2009 by Paul Brewer and Andy Drummond, Airia Compressed Air Solutions has a workforce comprising 10 employees, including 5 factory trained service engineers and an apprentice, with the dedicated team having in excess of 100 years combined experience in compressed air sales and service management between them.

Key accounts management is high on the two owners’ agenda, as is applying their specialist knowledge to provide customers with sound guidance on all aspects of the latest compressed air legislation.
