Atlas Copco Tools and Assembly Systems donated $10,000 to United Way of Genesee County to support the Flint, Michigan, water crisis


The funds came from Atlas Copco’s own charity organization, Water for All, to which employees contribute.

United Way of Genesee County accepted the donation at a special town hall meeting attended by all employees of the Auburn Hills Atlas Copco Tools and Assembly Systems headquarters. United Way will use the donation for the purchase of filters, bottled water, emergency support services and prevention and intervention efforts.

General Manager of Atlas Copco Tools and Assembly Systems Anders Hoberg said, “Atlas Copco is a global company, including our divisions which have 640 employees in North America. We feel it is important to invest in local needs as well as the global commitment.”

Water for All was founded in 1984 by Atlas Copco employees to improve access to clean drinking water. Through voluntary employee donations, which are doubled by the company, Atlas Copco has provided millions of gallons of clean drinking water. Many of Water for All’s projects involve new well development.

Hoberg said, “We believe clean water is a human right and feel proud when we can make a small contribution in line with our belief. We are committed to our customers and their families in the region, and we will continue to invest in local needs.”

The Atlas Copco Group is a global industrial group of companies headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden. Atlas Copco develops and manufactures industrial tools, compressed air equipment, construction and mining equipment and assembly systems, and offers related service and equipment rental.
