Atlas Copco Acquires Louisiana Air Compressor Distributor

Atlas Copco Compressors LLC has purchased the compressor division of Premier Equipment Corporation, Inc., a successful Atlas Copco compressor distributor for many years, serving the state of Louisiana.
“The acquisition brings us closer to our customers in the region, allowing us to build on the strong base that Premier Equipment has developed in key segments,” said Stephan Kuhn, business area president, Atlas Copco Compressor Technique.
The compressor division of Premier Equipment Corp. will be incorporated into the Southern Region of Atlas Copco Compressors, and the non-compressor side of the business, selling mainly pumps and process equipment, will continue to operate as Premier Equipment Corporation, Inc.
Premier Equipment, based in Baton Rouge, LA, has a well-developed customer base and market presence in Louisiana. Economic activity in the region is driven largely by chemical and petrochemical refining, off-shore oil services, ship building (workboats), general industry, and engineering services for the oil and gas sector.
Twelve employees will join Atlas Copco from Premier Equipment as a result of the acquisition. The parties have agreed not to disclose the purchase price.
