East Midlands compressor consultants, Compcon Ltd (Compcon), have been acquired by Pennine Pneumatic Services Ltd (PPS), one of the UK’s leading compressed air, pneumatic and refrigeration distributors. The move expands the reach of Pennine Pneumatic Services Ltd into Derbyshire and aligns two respected Atlas Copco distributors.
Compcon was established in 2009 by Dave Beer and Andy Conners with a mission to exceed customer expectations for compressed air service. As a service orientated business their values align with PPS providing a solid cultural underpinning for the acquisition.
“Like us, Compcon have a consultative approach to customer service and compressed air installations. It’s an exciting opportunity to be able to bring these two like-minded teams together,” commented Matt O’Connor, Operations Director at PPS. “I know the technical experience and capabilities within Compcon will bring great strength and support to our PPS team in South Yorkshire. But, likewise, I can already see how the capacity and diversity of products and services within PPS will allow Compcon to achieve that next level of growth.”
The team structure of Compcon will stay the same with founder Dave Beer staying on to lead the team. His co-founder Andy Conners retired from the business in 2020.
“Over the past couple of years at Compcon we have steadily grown, bringing the business to a point where it needed significant investment in people to bring stability and maintain the standard of service our customers expect,” explains Dave Beer of Compcon. “After investigating the options, based on the resources and time I have, becoming part of PPS gave the stability we craved, as part of a team who have continually set the standard for compressed air distribution.”
This acquisition expands the reach of PPS bringing their total number of branches to five, including their Brighouse head office, branches in Sheffield and Leigh, as well as Norman Walker in Hull.
PPS became part of the wider R&G Fluid Power Group in 2018 and have since benefitted from the support of this passionate network of businesses. Compcon will become the latest addition to the group, expanding their presence further in the Midlands.
For customers and staff of Compcon, it is business as usual, which means a complete compressed air service from the most experienced compressor engineers in the East Midlands.
