Searching for Britain’s Oldest Compressor

Wearside Pneumatics, the Authorised Distributor for Atlas Copco compressors and vacuum pumps in the North-East of England is on the lookout for Britain’s oldest compressor.


We have teamed up with Atlas Copco to help us with the search; they will replace the oldest still running, oil-injected, 30-90kW, stationary compressor in Britain with a brand new machine that delivers the same amount of air.


Keith Barron, Sales Manager for Atlas Copco Compressors, can tell you more about this unique competition in the video below:


How the competition works:

If you think that your site might have a contender for the title of Britain’s Oldest Compressor, please visit the Atlas Copco website to enter the competition. We will then arrange a follow up visit to your site to verify your entry and conduct a complimentary #airCheck of your compressed air system.


Atlas Copco will supply the new compressor to the winning business; if that business is in the North-East of England, we will install and commission the machine and provide a quote for the ongoing servicing on that new compressor.


It is completely FREE to enter and any make of industrial compressor is eligible provided it meets the following criteria:

  • Oil-injected
  • Motor power rating between 30kW and 90kW
  • Stationary
  • Still running
  • OLD

If your compressor ticks all of those boxes, then either contact us today or visit the Atlas Copco website, where you can find the competition rules and how to enter.


The closing date for entries is 31st December 2018.
