Atlas Copco has agreed to acquire the Ekomak Group, a Turkish manufacturer of industrial screw compressors, strengthening its market position in the region. Ekomak has a strong domestic position in industries such as metal works, textile and manufacturing.
A tailored engineering concept with suitable compressor types and treatment components, intelligent controllers, heat recovery solutions and a well-wrought pipework concept. For customers, this boils down to a potential reduction of 30% in energy and maintenance costs. Especially with oil-free compressed air stations with highly specific heat recovery, energy-optimised systems have been developed which meet the very highest standards.
Not a small deed for a medium size, world class, manufacturer, in the booming, competitive Brazilian environment. Air compressors are used by almost all industries, and consume great amounts of energy, but as ISO Secretary-General Rob Steele states. “Individual organizations cannot control energy prices, government policies or the global economy, but they can improve the way they manage energy in the here and now. Improved energy performance can provide rapid benefits for an organization by maximizing the use of its energy sources and energy-related assets, thus reducing both energy cost and consumption.”
The Association of Independent Compressor Distributors (AICD) has opened its membership to all independent compressor distributors - regardless of the manufacturer they represent
