Rick Dore to Sign Autographs at Atlas Copco Compressors Booth #10209 during SEMA 2015


Rick Dore, custom car builder, television personality and owner of Rick Dore Kustoms, will sign autographs at the Atlas Copco Compressors booth No. 10209 during the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show 2015, one of the premier automotive specialty products trade shows taking place from Nov. 4-7 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Dore will sign autographs on Wednesday, Nov. 4 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and from 1 to 3 p.m.

Rick Dore is the co-host of the Discovery Channel reality series Rusted Development, formerly known as Lords of the Car Hoards. The show follows Dore and co-host Chuck Palumbo, a retired WWE wrestler and mechanic, as they rescue legendary cars from car hoarders and refurbish them into one-of-a-kind dream cars. The show’s body shop is powered by an Atlas Copco GA 7-37 VSD+ oil-injected, oil-cooled rotary screw compressor, an energy efficient and compact air compressor with low noise levels.

“It’s incredible,” Dore said. “Not only is it efficient, it is quiet. I could be in the same room with it running and take a call from a show promoter (or James Hetfield himself) and be able to talk no problem.”

The innovative GA 7-37 VSD+ range reduces energy consumption by up to 50 percent, compared to a traditional load/unload compressor of the same type, and will be on display at Atlas Copco’s booth during SEMA. Its compact footprint and low noise levels are particularly advantageous for customers in the automotive service and body shop industries, where air compressors are often installed near the point of use. In addition, the GA VSD+ can save an auto body shop more than $10,000 per year based on the potential energy savings of just one 15 horsepower machine.

“I have a complete shop with some of the best guys on the planet,” Dore said. “When you go into a shop and it’s clean and the cars are filled with style, attitude, and elegance, and you look over in the corner and see the Atlas Copco? Yeah, it belongs there.”

Dore has an Atlas Copco GX5FF oil-injected rotary screw compressor in his shop at Rick Dore Kustoms, which he used to style and construct Aquarius, one of his coach built cars, crafted for James Hetfield of heavy metal band Metallica. The finished Aquarius will be displayed at this year’s SEMA Show at the Las Vegas Convention Center in the main corridor of the North Hall, booth No. GL15.

Other products on display at the Atlas Copco booth No. 10209 include the reliable GX 7 oil-injected rotary screw compressor available in floor mounted or tank mounted versions and with or without an integrated dryer, and the Atlas Copco AR series of intermittent, two-stage piston compressors available in vertical or horizontal models.
