Atlas Copco Acquires French Compressor Distributor


The French Atlas Copco subsidiary Exlair S.A.S has acquired Air et Techniques Energies Provence (ATEP), a distributor of industrial compressors and related products based in Aix-en-Provence, France.

ATEP was established in 1991 and has about 30 employees. The company is privately owned and has annual revenues of approximately MEUR 6 (MSEK 50).

Headquartered in Aix-en-Provence with sales and service branches in Nimes and Nice, ATEP sells and provides high-quality service for industrial compressors and ancillary equipment to a broad range of industrial customers in the region.

“By acquiring ATEP we further strengthen Atlas Copco’s presence in France for the benefit of our customers,” said Stephan Kuhn, Business Area President for Atlas Copco Compressor Technique. “ATEP has well-established relationships and a broad customer base in Southern France, complementing our existing organization and supporting our ambition to grow in this region.”

The business will keep the ATEP name and becomes part of Compressor Technique Service.
