Cooper Equipment Co. joins Atlas Copco dealer network
Atlas Copco welcomes Cooper Equipment Co. of San Antonio, Texas, to its growing dealer network. The new dealer will sell, rent and service Atlas Copco Dynapac pavers as well as soil and asphalt rollers to meet customer demand for road construction equipment in central Texas.
“Cooper Equipment’s strong focus and expertise on asphalt and road construction equipment will be a great addition to our dealer network,” said Jerry Hackett, Atlas Copco’s road construction equipment regional sales manager. “By adding Dynapac equipment to its lineup, Cooper Equipment Co. can expand its ability to meet a large range of asphalt contractors’ and seal coaters’ needs.”
Cooper Equipment Co. is prepared to meet the increased demand from customers for road equipment products as Texas’ population continues to grow, especially around San Antonio and Austin.
“We chose to join Atlas Copco because of Dynapac’s high-quality and performance in their rollers and new pavers,” said George Cooper, Cooper Equipment Co. president. “We value helping customers choose the best equipment and options, and by adding Dynapac, we can improve our customers’ equipment fleets and continue building on our success in the road construction market. We think our customers will like the minimal maintenance requirements and ergonomic operator stations that come standard with Dynapac.”
Atlas Copco designs its Dynapac equipment with operator comfort and minimum maintenance in mind. Many of its soil rollers, for example, feature cross-mounted, fuel-efficient Tier 4 Final diesel engines, with little or no regeneration requirements. Atlas Copco places the cross-mounted engines perpendicular to the frames, allowing users to easily reach all the necessary components on the engine and hydraulic pumps for fast and easy service — minimizing downtime.
All Atlas Copco road construction equipment features ergonomic operator platforms or stations. For instance, moveable and sliding seats give operators optimal visibility and minimize possible neck strain from leaning and twisting when trying to get a clear view of the machine and surroundings. High visibility is crucial for safety of nearby workers and for preventing worksite damage.
Cooper Equipment Co. plans to open a second store in Georgetown, Texas, this summer 2016.
