The International Woodworking Fair is one of the premier events for suppliers, manufacturers and the industry’s technology and products experts within the woodworking industry to come together and share ideas, solutions, and best practices. 
Representatives from Atlas Copco Compressors will be available at booth no. 7328 – located in Building B, Exhibit Hall Level – to showcase the reliable new 10hp GX 7 air compressor. Customers now have an opportunity to purchase compressors on the show floor with limited-time pricing structures that have been tailored specifically for IWF 2012 attendees.

The recently redesigned GX 7 EP air compressor from Atlas Copco is an ideal fit for anyone looking for a quiet, highly efficient compressor with limited installation space. Compressors in the GX 7 range combine a compact design with Atlas Copco’s proven, oil-injected screw element and load/unload regulation, providing workshops with economical and reliable performance.

“Woodworking professionals are experiencing many of the same issues that manufacturers in other industries face – in this case rising material costs coupled with other economic challenges – and we have energy efficient products specifically to meet these demands,” said Paul Humphreys, vice president communications and branding for Atlas Copco Compressors, LLC. “IWF is a great opportunity to learn more about how Atlas Copco Compressors, along with our custom accessories and auditing capabilities can maximize savings and productivity.”

Atlas Copco representatives will be at the booth for regular show hours, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, and 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.
