Unique cooperation between Atlas Copco and Machinery Resale:

The large facility along the E17 highway in Waregem holds over 1000 machines available in a wide range of applications. With this worldwide delivery of these second hand machines Machinery Resale lives up to its status of premium supplier of used equipment.


To provide the drilling market with very high pressure (35 bar), high capacity (35m³/min) portable compressors, Machinery Resale teamed up with Atlas Copco, and purchased  three new Atlas Copco XRYS DrillAirTM silenced compressor units.

“We already carry a big pool of large standard pressure portable compressors in our yard in Belgium.”, says Filip Maes, CEO of the company, “With the recent introduction of new industrial high pressure, high capacity portable Atlas Copco compressors into our fleet, we now have become instantly an outstanding supplier to the drilling market.”

With the introduction of these high quality Atlas Copco DrillAirTM units into its fleet, Machinery Resale  makes a strategic move towards the high end of the market. The key to the rent-to-rent success of Machinery Resale lies in the fact that the workers and employees in the company have a long sales experience in the second hand market and in re-marketing.
“We provide off-balance rental at competitive prices for the longer term. Our know-how in re-marketing of rental equipment gives exceptionally high residual values, and thus low monthly rates” resumes Filip Maes, “Typical lease companies cannot guarantee these residuals, which in fact have the highest impact in the lease rate calculation.”

“These Atlas Copco XRYS DrillAirTM units are part of a new generation of top quality industrial high pressure compressors that combine drilling efficiency, reliability and operation safety in a dedicated design for the Drilling market.” explains Guy Craeye, Business Line Manager Atlas Copco Construction Technique, “Next to the high quality of the Atlas Copco compressors, its worldwide professional aftermarket service is an important asset.“
