Atlas Copco Industrial South Africa has already delivered portable air compressors to sixty deserving small contractors and business owners around the country who rely on air to power their pneumatic tools.

“But we are not quite done,” says Atlas Copco Communications Professional, Noluthando Zondo. “We still have five portable Automan air compressors, each valued at over R6 000, to give away,”.

These high quality 1.5kw oil-lubricated piston compressors are ideal for powering tools used for a wide range of applications such as wood working, panel beating, spray painting, tyre inflation, blow moulding, and surface cleaning, to name but a few.

“To stand a chance to win one of these Automans, we invite small contractors and business owners to simply tell us about their business and how this compressor will help to grow their enterprise,” explains Noluthando. “Entrants have the option of emailing their entries to [email protected] or sending us a Whatsapp on 078 120 6715. Entries must reach us no later than Friday 11 November 2022. Once we have identified the five lucky winners, we will contact them directly before the end of November.” Noluthando adds that winners will receive training during the hand-over of the compressor.

“The reason behind Atlas Copco South Africa’s support and developmental strategy for small businesses is simple,” says Noluthando.  “By assisting small contractors and business owners to grow sustainably, we are addressing some of the country’s most pressing problems. Against the backdrop of unemployment and limited economic growth, the development of small businesses creates jobs, which in turn helps to uplift communities. It also increases the number of active income earners who can make a positive contribution to South Africa’s economy, stimulating the country’s growth.”

“As a subsidiary of Atlas Copco Group, a multinational engineering specialist, and Home of Industrial Ideas, it is our brand objective to empower others so that they can make a difference too,” concludes Noluthando.
