The significant growth of the industrial air compressor rental division launched by Integrated Air Solutions under a year ago, has prompted the need for more resources and equipment.
Headed up by Rudolf (Rudi) Denton, the rental division was established in a bid to provide customers with fast, reliable, flexible, cost- and energy-efficient industrial compressed air supply solutions. The division also supports Integrated Air Solutions’ sales business, offering customers reliable temporary compressed air solutions while waiting for their existing compressor to be repaired or replaced, keeping production flowing.
“Irrespective of whether the customer is renting or buying compressed air equipment from us, high quality service is always our number one priority,” says Managing Director of Integrated Air Solutions, Wayne Jacobs. “Since
introducing our rental offer to industry in July last year, our rental customer base has grown rapidly. To ensure that we keep in step and maintain our proud service record, we have bolstered our rental team. A new sales person and an office administrator have joined our dedicated, skilled service technicians who support customers on site 24/7.”
The division also had to look at ramping up its rental fleet of electrical compressors (7.5kw to 250kw and 7 bar to 10bar), diesel compressors (185cfm to 1100cfm and 7 to 10bar) and high-pressure (21bar) diesel compressors with a flow of 1100cfm. “We have invested in new air compressors, including 850cfm 10 bar units,” confirms Wayne. The comprehensive rental fleet meets a wide range of compressed air solutions, from small workshops to large factories, within the mining, engineering, refinery, construction and civil works, cement and manufacturing sectors.
Wayne confirms that their rental expansions also extend to their comprehensive after-market service offering with a healthy stock being carried by head office in Jet Park, Johannesburg. “Uptime adds to the bottom line so our newly bolstered rental team and fleet enables us to deliver a quick product and service turn-around to get customers up and running in no time for seamless and optimised production.”
In conclusion Wayne says that in order to ensure their future-readiness, there are more growth plans in the air compressor rental division pipeline. “Remaining true to our initial launch mandate, we will continue adding compressors to our rental fleet so that we are able to sustainably meet our customers’ individual and unique compressed air requirements.” Established by Johannesburg based GiGi Investments in 2017, Integrated Air Solutions supplies innovative, technologically advanced premium-brand industrial electric and diesel-driven compressors to Southern African industry.
