Chicago Pneumatic has marked the first sale of its Red Rock range of portable air compressors in Jordan, the company said in a statement.  

The sale came after Chicago Pneumatic’s authorised distributor, Sakkab Newport Trading (SNT), received three separate orders over the course of a few months.

The equipment will be used to maintain critical infrastructures in Jordan, including roads and water pipelines.

Shadi Al-Shoubaki, spokesperson from the Municipality of Greater Amman, said: “When working on road maintenance projects time is very valuable. The fact the Red Rock compressor requires little service, and consequently reduces downtime, heavily influenced the final purchase decision.

 

“Additionally, thanks to the technical support we received from Chicago Pneumatic, we’ve been able to train operators to undertake routine service tasks, such as changing oils and filters, very quickly.”

The first order received by SNT came from the Municipality of Greater Amman, and comprises 15 CPS 3.0 compressors and 15 CP 1290S pneumatic breakers that are being used primarily in road maintenance works.

The municipality allowed SNT to enter its tender process after testing a single Red Rock portable compressor for six months. This was to ensure the portable compressor and SNT met the technical, after-sales and customer service requirements that The Municipality of Greater Amman requests from all of its suppliers.  

Amjad Fallatah, Regional Product Manager for Chicago Pneumatic Construction Equipment in the Middle East, added: “Our brand is relatively new in the Jordanian market, hence we understood the client wanted to thoroughly test the compressor, and the experience of working with our distributor, before making a final decision.”
