Atlas Copco realigns business units
Atlas Copco Construction Equipment LLC is the name of the new Atlas Copco business dedicated to serving the U.S. construction market. This new entity combines the Portable Air operations of Atlas Copco Compressor Technique’s U.S. sales company with the Atlas Copco Construction Tools USA sales company.
The new operation is responsible for the sales and service of portable compressors; generators; pneumatic, hydraulic and gasoline-powered construction and demolition tools; and related aftermarket services for both the Atlas Copco and Chicago Pneumatic brands.
The new organization is headquartered in Commerce City, Colo., sharing offices with the Atlas Copco Construction Mining Technique USA customer center. The new company will have three sales and service regions in the North, South and West United States. The Westfield, Mass., office of the Construction Tools business will be closed at the end of March.
“We are looking at this as an opportunity to become more focused and dedicated, specializing in the unique needs of the construction industry,” said Erik Sparby, general manager of the new entity.
