Acme Lift Co. is expanding its equipment lineup to include Sullair’s large mobile air compressors that produce from 700 to 1,600 cubic feet per minute.
“I am extremely proud to announce the new strategic alliance between Acme Lift and Sullair,” said Woody Weld, Acme Lift’s chief executive officer. “Acme Lift will now be able to provide, via rental, Sullair’s large mobile air compressors, which are of the highest quality available. In its 50 years in business, Sullair has assembled an excellent network of sales and service partners. Sullair’s existing partners and the growing rental industry will benefit greatly by gaining wide access, through Acme Lift, to Sullair’s large capacity mobile air compressors.”
Acme Lift has been exploring opportunities to expand its fleet, beyond its core of big self-propelled aerial work platforms and telehandlers, into other machines that align with the needs of the company’s re-rental customers, Weld said.
Mike Crouch, Acme Lift president and chief operating officer, said Acme Lift offers a world-class means of moving specialized equipment into the wholesale rental market.
“The Sullair large portable air compressor line is an ideal wholesale rental product,” Crouch said. “Renting through Acme Lift allows our customers to expand their fleets to include these specialized units when their customers demand them. And our customers won’t have to tie up significant capital expenditures for these machines. This alliance is mutually beneficial, allowing Acme Lift and Sullair to expand their customer bases.”
The air compressors that will be offered by Acme Lift include the Sullair 700HH iT4, 750H iT4, 900H iT4, E900H electric, 1600H iT4 and the high-pressure 900XHH/1150XH iT4. Acme Lift also will carry Sullair remanufactured compressors featuring the same factory warranty as a new unit, including the 900H T2/T3, 1600H T2/T3f and 900XHH/1150XH T2/T3.
Rental companies with customers in the mining, petroleum, industrial and construction industries now have a one-stop-shop to easily meet their large air compressor needs.
“The alliance between Sullair and Acme Lift gives us yet another avenue to expand our large portable line,” said Stefan Brosick, Sullair vice president of sales. “We are pleased to offer our channel partners an additional option outside of purchasing outright and the ability to supplement their operations by performing service and warranty work on the units. It also presents our channel partners with new opportunities to bid larger jobs without having to invest significant capital.”
