Atlas Copco acquires US compressor parts distributor

Atlas Copco has acquired Hydra Flow West, a distributor focused on sourcing and sales of spare parts and accessories used in compressor service.

Located in Walnut in the US state of California, Hydra Flow West currently employs seven personnel.

“Hydra Flow West has built up a loyal customer base in their targeted market,” said Vagner Rego, business area president of Atlas Copco Compressor Technique. “Through the acquisition we will increase our presence on the US west coast and ensure timely delivery of parts.”

The cost of the acquisition was not disclosed and is not material relative to Atlas Copco’s market capitalisation, according to the company.

Hydra Flow West will become part of the service division within Atlas Copco’s Compressor Technique business area.
