Atlas Copco Compressors has announced the appointment of Mark Ranger as business line manager of its oil-free air division in the UK.
Ranger has more than 30 years of experience in the compressed air industry, including six years as oil-free sales manager at Atlas Copco between 2005 and 2011.
He will aim to sustain Atlas Copco’s position in the provision of oil-free compressors for the food and beverage manufacturing industry, and “develop the market position of oil-injected compressors over 90kW, which are the backbone of many larger manufacturing processes,” the firm said.
He will also be tasked with ensuring that “top-tier industrial customers across all sectors are aware of the complete range of products and services available from Atlas Copco”.
Ranger said: “Having worked for a number of companies in the compressed air industry since I started my career in 1985, I now have a greater-than-ever appreciation of Atlas Copco’s reputation as a global leader in terms of technology, people and positioning. Coupled with the opportunity to fulfil a personal ambition to head the oil-free air division, this role was one that I could not allow to pass. My objective is to ensure that Atlas Copco remains foremost in the minds of compressed air users, in markets where there is a focus on maximising productivity through product innovation and reliability. At the same time, we can meet the need to reduce the total cost of ownership and the use of energy from environmental, regulatory and cost-saving perspectives.”
