Flint Equipment Company, headquartered in Albany, Ga., is now the Atlas Copco Construction Equipment distributor for the State of Georgia. Flint Equipment will represent the full ACCE line including portable air compressors, portable generators, hydraulic attachments and handheld tools.

“We have carried Atlas Copco hammers in the past and thought they were a good product. We wanted to continue what we offered from Atlas Copco,” said Todd Smith, operations manager at the Atlanta and Adairsville Flint Equipment Company locations.

Mike Shannon, area sales manager of Atlas Copco Construction Equipment, commented that adding Flint Equipment to the distributor network “presents great opportunities for both Atlas Copco and Flint Equipment.

“Flint Equipment’s broad footprint across Georgia and the surrounding areas, along with their experienced construction equipment sales teams and product support organizations, are a great fit with Atlas Copco’s objectives of growth through strong distribution.

“I’m thrilled to have Flint Equipment on board. They’re a superior dealer and I’ve been enjoying working with them.”

Shannon added that Flint’s success as a John Deere engine supplier over a six-state area, along with its extensive agricultural and forestry equipment distribution network, speaks well to its reputation for quality sales and service.

Flint Equipment personnel are in the process of receiving training on Atlas Copco systems and products to ensure that their customers receive the highest quality representation and product support for the Atlas Copco equipment lines represented.

Flint Equipment Company started out small as a tractor sales and service location in 1932. It grew to the heavy construction business, where it has had a presence for more than 40 years as a full-service dealer of new and used construction, forestry, utility, compaction and mining equipment. It now has 17 offices in three states with nearly 300 employees.
