Leakfind partners with Rand-Air for their compressed air needs

Antwerp, Belgium, March 17, 2016: Leakfind, specialists in leak detection, pipe location, general plumbing and Nuflow Pipe Relining recently hired two Rand-Air (Atlas Copco Rental South Africa) machines on a three year long term rental contract for use on various sites.

The company which has been operating in the plumbing and leak detection industry for the past ten years demands reliable and durable equipment that provides compressed air to service their core area of business.

“The decision to commission Rand-Air as our preferred partner was an easy one which was reinforced by their reputation for being market leaders in the rental of compressors and generators. Rehabilitating the inner structure of deteriorated or failing water piping systems requires uncompromising levels of compressed air to line the pipes internally. With an extensive fleet of air compressors, Rand-Air was able to service our needs with the right equipment.”

Pieter Van Rheede Van Oudtshoorn, Co-Owner at Leakfind.

Leakfind’s vision to obtain a loyal customer base through excellence in service is well positioned and aligned with Rand-Air’s core values and motto for exceeding customer satisfaction and expectation.

“As we are equally invested in providing our customers with service that goes above and beyond the normal call of duty, we appreciated that Rand-Air shared the same principles.”

Pieter Van Rheede Van Oudtshoorn, Co-Owner at Leakfind.

“Our Industrial Plant Rental model enables Leakfind to outsource the responsibility associated with the supply of air. We are highly committed to enabling productivity and enhanced cash flow which is something that we achieve by taking over the responsibility of their compressed air needs.”

Brenda Couch, Business Development Manager – Cape region

Rand-Air’s pre-specified packages include the cost of machinery, delivery, installation, standby service 24/7, scheduled inspections, substitute equipment where necessary, parts, labour and travelling costs with a guarantee that that they deliver on their promise.
