Atlas Copco has acquired the operating assets of US company Taylor Air Center, a division of Vallen Distribution Inc.

Taylor Air Center, a Pennsylvania-based distributor of compressors, has around 20 employees and is located within the densely populated Lehigh Valley.

“Taylor Air Center has a very long history of being a successful distributor and has a well-served, established customer base”, said Vagner Rego, Business Area President Compressor Technique.

Taylor Air Center sells mainly directly to end users across a focused range of market sectors, along with some sales to smaller resellers in their region.

The purchase price is not material relative to Atlas Copco’s market capitalisation and was not disclosed. The acquired business will operationally become part of the Compressor Technique service division.

Sweden-based Atlas Copco, a provider of compressors, vacuum solutions and air treatment systems, has customers in more than 180 countries and about 37 000 employees.
