2019 is a big year for Atlas Copco in Great Britain. We will be celebrating the hundredth anniversary of our Customer Centre being established. As one of the oldest Atlas Copco entities outside of Sweden, we have chosen to share the festive spirit surrounding our anniversary with a competition.
Congratulations to Whitworths Ltd, who has won our Oldest Compressor competition! Their 43 year old Atlas Copco GA408 compressor has run for over 167,000 hours in the production of dried fruits, nuts and seeds. They win a replacement compressor with the same free air delivery, which will be installed by our distributor Anglian Compressors.
Compressors play a big part in the industrial and manufacturing sector. Often referred to as the fourth utility, they are the silent partner powering many of the processes necessary to manufacture our every day comforts. In what is for us a landmark anniversary, we would like to turn the attention to these silent partners and find the compressor that has completed the longest tour of duty in Great Britain (and is still going!)
The reward will be your compressor's long-overdue retirement, replaced by a free, latest generation GA fixed speed compressor that offers the same level of free air delivery, with the machine's delivery included.
If you are running an old, 30kW to 90kW, oil-injected, stationary compressor, we'd like to hear from you!
The competition closed on 31st December. The winner is Whitworths Ltd, with a 1976 compressor.
This competition is run by Atlas Copco Ltd. trading as Atlas Copco Compressors (Atlas Copco)
