Peterborough-based Anglian Compressors has been named as Atlas Copco Compressors’ Distributor of the Year 2011. Presenting the award, Mark Keen, Southern Sales Manager for Atlas Copco Compressors commented: “The Anglian Compressors team were consistent performers throughout 2011. Their focus on energy saving and the true cost of ownership, together with emphasising the importance of equipment service programmes, has enabled them to build a strong relationship with their customers. This is reflected in significant year-on-year sales growth.”

Anglian Compressors won the award having successfully surpassed their sales targets for the year. They achieved this by fully utilising Atlas Copco’s Industrial Air compressor range and embracing new products, such as the Z-series range of small oil-free compressors, as well as the range of Compressor Technique Service products, including air auditing software. Anglian Compressors’ service operation offering has also developed into a major growth area, with the company successfully offering advanced monitoring services to customers who are looking to scale back their own on-site maintenance teams.

That way we can highlight potential savings and offer a range of energy-efficient solutions.”

During this time the company has won many plaudits and accolades. According to Paul Skeritt, Managing Director at Anglian Compressors: “Winning the Distributor of the Year award is down to the hard work of each and every member of staff within the company, a real team effort, where everyone played their part. 2011 was always going to be a tough year for industry as a whole, but by focusing on great products, first class service and hard work, we had a fantastic year. The standard set by fellow Atlas Copco distributors is always very high, so to win is a real ac- colade.”
