New business structure for construction equipment sales in the USA market
January 2009: Reflecting an exciting change in the operations of Atlas Copco Construction Tools LLC, the name of this customer center has been changed to Atlas Copco Construction Equipment LLC. In addition to all equipment that the company has been selling and servicing for many years, the new operations include sales and servicing of portable air compressors and generators, taken over from the Portable Air segment of Atlas Copco Compressors LLC.
The business is headquartered in Commerce City, Colorado, sharing offices and back office functions with the Atlas Copco Construction Mining Technique USA customer center. Although the two companies will operate independently, they have much the same culture and market knowledge and can benefit from these and other synergies. The Westfield, Mass., office of the Construction Tools company will be closed at the end of March 2009.
Top priorities of Atlas Copco Construction Equipment LLC are to stabilize the sales and service structure, to support customers, and to continue to be a leader in the construction equipment business. The new company will have three sales and service regions in the North, South and West United States.
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, specializing on the unique needs of the construction industry in the US,” he said.
