Atlas Copco and Parker Filtration Cut Ties with Russia

With a huge blow to the manufacturing plants and compressed air users in Russia, both Atlas Copco and Parker-Hannifin have ceased operations in Russia. 

Atlas Copco's first international market outside of the USA began with Moscow in 1913. Atlas Copco halted all deliveries to the country.

Parker immediately suspended all shipments to and from Russia on March 31st. They also closed their warehouse and office in Moscow and "no longer do business in the country." Parker-Hannifin has been operating in Russia for over 20 years. 

The long line of air compressor and filter element brands affected by this include Airtek, Atlas Copco, Balston, Ceccato, Chicago Pneumatic, Dekker Vacuum, Domnick Hunter, Finite, Hiross, Leybold, Nano, Pioneer, Pneumatech, Walker Filtration, Watts, Quincy, Zander and many more. 

Russian companies will likely turn to aftermarket compressed air filters like ours, but we don't ship to Russia. It appears that President Putin may have some messy compressed air on his hands.
