It’s never too early to prepare for a new business win! This was the strategy Atlas Copco Rental used when pitching for the business of Mexico’s largest integrated steel plant. Preparatory work began one year before the client asked for quotes, and the team was ready with a customized solution that won the company a long-term rental contract.

What worked to our advantage was the completeness of the offer with new equipment that would be monitored all the time, maintenance and a 24/7 service presence. In addition, we could offer portable units for their cold box tests before the arrival of the new compressors and dryers. Air-supply warranty no matter what was a winning argument!
One of AHMSA’s production processes is a smelting process called “hot rolled”, where Atlas Copco compressed air system will help to standardize, remove impurities and roll steel sheets. The Atlas Copco units will enable AHMSA to increase its capacity from the current 500 000 tons to 1 000 000 tons of steel sheets.
