Swedish industrial manufacturer Atlas Copco on Tuesday announced it has acquired Cooper Freer Ltd., a British distributor that serves industrial, water treatment and service companies in the Midlands region. Financial terms of the deal weren’t disclosed.
Cooper Freer, which is privately owned and has 18 employees, is based in Leicester. The company will become part of the service division within Atlas Copco’s Compressor Technique business area.
“We have a long history of working closely with Cooper Freer,” said Vagner Rego, business area president Compressor Technique. “Through this acquisition we will get the opportunity to better serve current customers and grow our market presence in a key region in the UK.”
