Coronavirus: Free compressor loan helps hand sanitiser bottler 21 May 2020

Scottish spirit bottling business Young Spirits, which has switched operations to produce hand sanitisers to fight the Covid-19 outbreak, has benefitted from a free loan offer from compressor manufacturer Vert Technologies.

John Ferguson, director and co-founder of Young Spirits, explains: “On converting our operations to hand sanitisers we needed additional air to power bottling equipment so took advantage of the Vert’s 'free compressor loan scheme'."

Vert’s offer of short-term compressors, free of charge, to manufacturing companies that need air for one or two production machines is designed to help Scottish businesses cope with any downturn.

Ferguson continues: “As existing Vert customers – we already run an A150 model which gives us more than enough for normal demand – we were keen to take advantage of Vert’s generous free-loan offer. Our additional A100 compressor gives us the extra air power we needed. It was delivered the day we ordered it and was installed within two hours.”

The A100 and A150 compressors are powered by Vert’s patented Conical Rotary (CRC) technology. The A100 compressor is said to offer 100lpm flow and 10 bar pressure and the A150 provides 150lpm at 10bar.

Vert chief executive Dr Phil Harris adds: “We are delighted that the team at Young Spirits is putting its expertise to such an important issue as the production of hand sanitisers and we are delighted to be able to support them in this.

“Our free loan compressor offer will, we hope, help others do their bit. We have only a small stock of compressors remaining that we can offer for short term use free of charge, but please get in touch if your business needs quiet, powerful compressor assistance and we will do our best to help.”
