Precision Pneumatics celebrates 25 Years as Atlas Copco Premier Distributor

28 July, 2016

Precision Pneumatics, based in Knowsley, Liverpool, is celebrating its 25th anniversary as a Premier Distributor for Atlas Copco Compressors. According to managing director Phil Hood: “Our continued success is the result of offering quality products combined with the exceptional customer service and support provided by our highly experienced and dedicated team.”


As the result of these endeavours, the business has enjoyed a history of continual growth and for most of its quarter century has been among the top three performers within Atlas Copco Compressors’ nationwide distributor network.

The company was originally established in 1991 by Phil Hood, Julie Prescott and John Bevan (now retired) who between them have over 68 years’ experience in the compressed air and pneumatics industry. The company has been an Atlas Copco Premier Distributor ever since its inception and its sales territory covers Merseyside, Lancashire, Cheshire and North Wales.

Wide range

Authorised to undertake surveys and the design, supply and installation of Atlas Copco compressors and compressed air equipment, Precision Pneumatics offers products from Atlas Copco’s industrial compressor range; including fixed speed oil-injected rotary screw compressors, from the GX and GA ranges, and oil injected VSD compressors up to 315kW. The distributor also offers Class Zero rated oil-free scroll compressors up to 22kW, quality air accessories such as dryers and inline filters, and was among the first Atlas Copco suppliers nationwide to introduce the revolutionary GHS VSD+ rotary screw vacuum pumps.

The company has undergone much change over its past 25 years. As co-founder and director, Julie Prescott observes: “Phil and I have come a long way since we started the business operation with an office that comprised just two deck chairs and a crate for a desk. For a little while there was no phone service connected, so our very first order was placed from the public phone box around the corner.”

Since then, Precision Pneumatics has continued to grow as a business and in 2000 acquired Wearside Pneumatics, who are also an Atlas Copco distributor. In 2002, the company moved into a purpose-built 12,500 sq ft factory, and now employs 23 people at its branch in Liverpool − and is actively recruiting more − plus a further eight at its Wearside Pneumatics operation in the North East.
