Atlas Copco increases its focus on the construction sector



Atlas Copco Group recently created a fourth business area, Construction Technique, that will enable the company to intensify the focus on construction customers and products and to optimise the synergies between its construction-related divisions.

In the new Construction Technique organisation Atlas Copco’s divisions for portable compressors and generators, road construction equipment and construction tools and have joined forces, and are supported by a new dedicated service division.

Atlas Copco CEO and President Ronnie Leten, stated: “One of our ambitions is to further strengthen the focus on our construction customers by providing a dedicated organisation for all our construction products and services.”

The Construction Technique business area will provide construction and demolition tools, portable compressors, pumps and generators, lighting towers, and compaction and paving equipment. It will also innovate for sustainable productivity in infrastructure, civil works and road construction projects.

Adrian Ridge, President of the newly formed Construction Service division, added: “Construction Service has been created to deliver sustainable growth, both for our customers and our organisation. To achieve this we intend to deliver a superior service experience to our customers.”

No major changes will happen overnight to Atlas Copco’s global customer center organization. In some regions, the combined market size and potential will allow for dedicated Construction Technique customer centers to be opened.

Ronnie Leten, pointed out: “We will only implement changes that benefit our customers, and only after careful consideration.”

Principal product development and manufacturing units will be located in Belgium, Germany, Sweden, China and Brazil.
