Atlas Copco intensifies focus on construction sector

On July 1, 2011, to intensify the focus on construction customers and products and to optimize the synergies between its construction-related divisions, the Atlas Copco Group created a fourth business area, Construction Technique.

In the new Construction Technique organization 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, states: “One of our ambitions is to further strengthen the focus on our construction customers by providing a dedicated organization for all our construction products and services.”

Adrian Ridge, President of the newly formed Construction Service division: “Construction Service has been created to deliver sustainable growth, both for our customers and our organization. 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: “We will only implement changes that benefit our customers, and only after careful consideration.”
