Atlas Copco merges US sales businesses

Atlas Copco - the construction and mining plant giant - has merged two of its sales operations to form a new business serving the US market, it announced today.

The new firm - Atlas Copco Construction Equipment - combines the Portable Air operations of Atlas Copco Compressor Technique’s US sales company with the Atlas Copco Construction Tools USA sales company.

It will be responsible for the sales and service of portable compressors, generators, pneumatic, hydraulic, and gasoline-powered construction and demolition tools, along with related aftermarket services, for both the Atlas Copco and Chicago Pneumatic brands.

Erik Sparby heads up Atlas Copco Construction Equipment as its general manager. “We are looking at this as an opportunity to become more focused and dedicated, specialising on the unique needs of the construction industry,” he said.
