December 10, 2012 // Franchising.com // SOUTH EASTON, MA - Compressor World (www.compressorworld.com), a leading, online, global provider of compressors for businesses using air compressor products, announced today that it has acquired a new building and will relocate its corporate headquarters and storage facilities to a location in Pembroke, MA.
Matt Mazanec, a principal at Compressor World, said that the firm has purchased an 18,750 square foot building in the North River Industrial Park in Pembroke, adjacent to Route 139 and near the interchange of Route 3. The building more than doubles the size of Compressor World, which currently operates a location in South Easton, MA, of about 3,000 square feet, and a warehouse in Worcester, which is 5,000 square feet. Compressor World will consolidate their operation into this one facility, which has not only more than double their square footage but also 50’ ceilings.
Mazanec said he hopes that Compressor World will be fully operational in the Pembroke location by January of 2013.
The additional space will help with the company’s warehousing needs, as they continue to expand. At any given time, Compressor World has more than 300 compressors in stock. The company’s expansion plans include franchising and they anticipate that, as they add franchisees and new territories, additional space will be helpful.
Mazanec noted that Compressor World is unique in their industry in that ordering is done online. “Historically, many in the business of providing compressors did so in the brick-and-mortar environment,” he said, adding, “Expanding our business via the web has enabled us to increase our territory and undertake this franchising model.”
The growing company recently signed its first franchisee, who will operate a territory in Alabama and Georgia.
Compressor World markets its own brand of compressors and also carries a number of major manufacturer brands including Quincy, Ingersoll Rand, Chicago Pneumatic, Powerex, and Rotair. Approximately 60% of the compressors that the company sells are their own brand. As the company franchises its brand, the Pembroke location will serve as the warehouse and Operations Center from which all products are ordered and shipped.
Compressor World is a worldwide distributor of compressors for a wide range of business and industrial uses. The firm, established in 2000, presently maintains locations in South Easton and Worcester, MA, but in early 2013 will consolidate and operate from 32 Riverside Drive, Pembroke, MA. The firm is the super sales store of compressors, with ordering done exclusively online. Compressor World has clients worldwide including universities, engineering plants, hospitals, automotive dealers and repair facilities, oil and gas refineries, and virtually any industry. Partners Matt Mazanec and Steve Bergamesca founded the company in 2000 to address the growing demand for compressors that could be delivered with a short turnaround of time.
