Competition – How old is your air compressor?

Posted on

To mark the 100th anniversary of its Customer Centre over here, the good folk at Atlas Copco have set up a competition to find the oldest running industrial air compressor in Great Britain.

If you’re limping along with an old 30kW – 90kW, oil-injected, stationary air compressor that somehow keeps going year after year but is well past its retirement date, then this competition is for you.

The prize?
A brand new, latest generation, GA fixed speed air compressor matching your current air compressor’s free air delivery (FAD). What’s more, you’ll get your new machine delivered direct to your site.

Your existing air compressor can be any model, as long as it’s as old as the hills, still working and located in Great Britain.

You can enter the competition and find all the Terms & Conditions on the Atlas Copco website. For help submitting your entry, call 0800 181 085 or email

The deadline for filling out the online form is 31 December 2018, with the winner announced on social media on 18 January 2019.

Good luck – and may the best oldest machine win!
