London Hospital Leans On Lonate, Italy, Team to Deliver Needed Compressors, Fast

“Our employees in Lonate, Italy, raced to manufacture 26 Gardner Denver compressors for a London hospital in need,” said Enrique M. Viseras, vice president and general manager of our Industrial Technologies and Services, EMEIA business. “Their actions exemplify our values and illustrate true compassion and teamwork in a global time of need.”


Colin Mander, Ingersoll Rand’s European business line director, partnered with Richard Coar, group operations director of long-time distributor Ace Group of Manchester, England, to coordinate this large, rush order.

“The team worked tirelessly to get these machines built and delivered,” said Richard in a letter of appreciation. “The partnership between the ACE group and Ingersoll Rand will save people’s lives and I can’t praise your team and their exceptional effort enough; everyone should be very proud of what they have achieved.”

“I can’t even say I’m surprised,” smiled Enrique. “I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again—our people are the best. To the Lonate team—and all the others providing similar acts of exceptional service with compassion and selflessness—thank you.”
