Atlas Copco acquires U.S. specialty dryer rental business

Stockholm, Sweden, July 2, 2015: Atlas Copco, a leading provider of sustainable productivity solutions, has acquired the operating assets of Mustang Services, a U.S. specialty dryer rental business that serves industries such as refineries, petrochemical plants and general manufacturing.

Mustang Services is based in Mesquite, Texas, and was part of privately owned Mustang Transportation Co.

Two of the company’s employees are joining Atlas Copco. Mustang Services rents out its equipment, mainly adsorption type air dryers, to industrial end-users that require dry compressed air in their processes, as well as to other rental companies. The products are often rented together with air compressors to provide customers with a total rental solution.
