Press Release: Atlas Copco and Thomas Bow City Asphalt
Thomas Bow City Asphalt, a surfacing contractor with a long-established relationship with Dynapac, has purchased a new SD2500WS paver. The paver will be used for surfacing works around the Midlands. This is the fifth Dynapac paver the group has purchased, however, it’s the first since Dynapac has been taken under the Atlas Copco brand last year.
Thomas Bow City Asphalt, established in 1867, now employs more than 120 people. The firm, based in Nottingham, works throughout the UK on major highway frameworks, commonly working in partnership with local authorities. The new SD2500WS has been purchased for use on the Oulton Park race circuit, a resurfacing job that requires the smoothest of finishes. Features include the safe impact system, integrated levelling, a sliding cabin deck and an energy-saving motor all to improve productivity for the user.
Alex Gardner, Operations Director at Thomas Bow City Asphalt, comments on the new paver, “We decided to go with the Dynapac SD2500WS as we have purchased four in the past which we found to be versatile, very reliable and effective.” Alex goes on to say, “We have confidence that Atlas Copco will provide fantastic equipment and incredible aftercare. The laying quantity and quality, as well as the reliability of the paver, meet our high standards.”
Donato Campanaro, Sales Manager for Road Construction Equipment says, “Thomas Bow City Asphalt has a good working relationship with Dynapac built up over many years that we were keen to build on. Our new generation of innovative, robust and reliable machines coupled with our dedicated service backup has allowed us to continue this relationship with Atlas Copco”
Dynapac is now fully immersed into the Atlas Copco brand but Dynapac remains as the product name. The Dynapac SD2500WS combines outstanding paving performance with excellent operator comfort and fuel efficiency. It is part of a renewed focus from Atlas Copco on the UK market, offering more ergonomic, economical and robust machines for these tougher economic times.
