Atlas Copco Compressors LLC has purchased certain assets of American Air Products Inc. USA. The acquired business has been a long-serving Atlas Copco compressor distributor for many years in the states of Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, as well as areas of Wisconsin.

“Feet on the street and maintaining the closest relationship with the customer continues to be a high priority for us,” says Stephan Kuhn, business area president, Atlas Copco Compressor Technique. “This acquisition gives us the opportunity to bring some experienced sales and aftermarket people into Atlas Copco, and will allow for an even greater customer focus.”

The acquired business, operating on the market under the name Clayhill, has a well-developed customer base and market presence within the region. Its sales mainly consist of Atlas Copco branded compressor equipment and parts. Approximately 18 employees will join Atlas Copco from American Air Products as a result of this acquisition, and the American Air Products business will be incorporated into the Central Region of Atlas Copco Compressors in the United States. The Clayhill name will be used for an interim period.
