FTG Equipment Solutions, Carney’s Point, N.J., has been named the exclusive U.S. distributor for Rotair portable diesel air compressors, effective June 1. 2012.
Since 1961, Rotair Spa has been a leading European manufacturer of air compressors, including diesel towable, electric stationary and gasoline portable models, as well as other related equipment.
“We are pleased to announce the appointment of FTG Equipment Solutions as Rotair’s exclusive distributor for portable air compressors in the U.S.,” said Giuseppe Donadio, the company’s managing director. "It is the goal of our organization to demonstrate the quality and performance of Rotair products in the U.S. and help American customers understand why Rotair is one of the fastest growing equipment brands in Europe. We are totally committed to the U.S. market and we see success as our only option.”
Based in Caraglio, Italy, Rotair produces a wide range of diesel portables from 40 cfm through 900 cfm with new and larger models on the way. FTG will distribute the full range of Rotair portables, including several high-pressure models, and specialty air for the oil industry, marine agriculture and other unique applications. However, FTG’s main focus will be the U.S. construction and industrial markets, with a heavy emphasis on rental. FTG will sell only through established dealers, rental companies and selected national accounts.
FTG’s partners — Scott Wistar, chairman, and Ron Johnson, president — have nearly 70 combined years of experience in retail and wholesale distribution and rental of construction and industrial equipment.
“Having been integrally involved with the establishment of another quality brand of portable air compressors in the U.S., we understand what is involved in the process and how good any new product must be to get traction,” Johnson said.
“Rotair compressors have everything necessary to make a significant market impact, including the highest commitment on the part of a manufacturer any of us have ever observed. We are elated about this opportunity,” he said.
Rotair compressors are rotary screw design and offer feature including Kubota, Perkins and Cummins diesel engines on the most popular models, automatic load and unload, automatic glow plug ignition, advanced double filtration systems and torsion suspension. They are also backed by a five-year, unlimited hour, air-end warranty.
