About the employer

Anglian Compressors & Equipment Ltd have been a premier distributor for Atlas Copco since 1977. But we do far more than install and service air compressors. Our approach is to analyse each client’s site and help them cut costs and improve efficiency. Our experts data-log every stage of the production process to create energy reports and recommend new, more efficient ways to work. We help each customer understand compressed air better, to know why they need it and why it’s so important to review their needs regularly. New technology means better reliability, lower energy bills and faster production – and ultimately improves air quality and product quality. Our customers span every market sector and operational size. We’re based in Peterborough, with a client base covering a 150 mile radius.
