This acquisition allows us to focus on sales and service in the Midwest,” Quincy Compressor president John Thompson said in a statement. “We have established strong customer relationships in the region and intend to strengthen our market presence, building upon the solid customer base established by National Pump & Compressor’s Chicago-based team.”

Forty-three employees in a variety of sales and service roles have joined Quincy Compressor from National Pump & Compressor. The acquired branches now form Quincy’s direct sales and service center in Illinois.
