Glaston celebrates 40th anniversary as official HPC Compressor supplier

Glaston Compressor Services is proud to announce our 40th anniversary as an official supplier of HPC Compressors. Over the years, we have seen thousands of successful installations of the nation’s favourite yellow box compressed air system for countless happy Glaston customers. To achieve 40 years as an authorised distributor for a worldwide market-leading manufacturer of air compressors and compressed air systems is no small feat.

We sat down with our commander in chief, Michael Douglas, to discuss the winning partnership between Glaston and HPC Compressors. Join us as we look back at the key moments and successes of our first 40 years as an HPC compressor supplier and distributor and look ahead to what the future holds for us here at Glaston.

40 years as an official UK supplier and distributor for HPC Compressors

How does it feel for Glaston to achieve 40 years as an official supplier and distributor of HPC Compressors?

“We are very pleased to have such a strong partnership with HPC over the past 40 years”, begins Michael. “This relationship not only benefits Glaston and HPC but gives our customers stability and peace of mind that we are here for the long term. Unlike many other compressor houses in the UK, Glaston doesn’t chop and change the compressor manufacturer that we buy from.”

How did you first get involved as an HPC compressor supplier?

“Originally, Glaston was not tied to any one compressor manufacturer”, explains Michael. “However, we knew about HPC compressors and they approached us to sell their compressors. Once we saw the quality of these units, we never looked back. Over the last 40 years, it feels as though Glaston and HPC have grown up together.”

How has the relationship evolved between HPC and Glaston since the partnership first started?

“Glaston and HPC compressors have a very close partnership, given the length of the relationship thus far,” continues Michael. “This is something which pleases me a great deal as our partnership is mutually beneficial to each other’s r customers, as well as each respective businesses.”

What have been some of your biggest successes as an official HPC compressor supplier?

“Glaston has done many large HPC compressor installations, alongside smaller ones,” says Michael. “We view all our work and orders as big successes. As such, we treat all of our customers with the same care and attention, regardless of the size of the order.”

What have been some of your biggest challenges as an official HPC compressor supplier?

“At the moment, the biggest challenge we face is the continued weakness of the pound against the euro,” explains Michael. “As all HPC compressors are assembled in Germany, the weaker the pound is, the higher the pricing we will have to pass onto customers as a result. Thankfully, the continued development for energy savings from both Glaston and HPC will offset these increased purchase costs to our customers.”

What are the most popular HPC compressed air systems which you have supplied to customers over the years?

“Like all compressor suppliers, Glaston sells more small compressors than big compressors,” continues Michael. “However, we have always done well selling the larger HPC 160kw compressor range in particular. This is because they are an almost perfect balance of volume and efficiency.”

Where do you see the future heading for Glaston as an HPC compressor supplier?

“Thankfully, we have a stable partnership with HPC,” says Michael. “Along with HPC continually developing their compressor range to keep ahead of the competition, I foresee more of the same. From everyone at Glaston, we look forward to the next 40 years working alongside our partner and friend, HPC Compressors.”
