The renewal of the two-year agreement will also see Atlas Copco continue to supply GAP with a range of air tools and excavator breakers. The compressors are being supplied in Atlas colours with bespoke GAP stickers applied.
GAP’s head of procurement Ken Stewart said: “Following an extensive evaluation of compressors offered by other manufacturers, Atlas Copco still led the way in meeting our technical and, at times demanding, commercial criteria. In times of political uncertainty, it is vital that we have long-term supply agreements in place with our key suppliers.”
He added: “We look forward to the introduction of the new 8 Series compressors into our hire fleet as they’ll offer customers significant fuel savings and reduced service costs.”
