From 1 January next year, Atlas Copco’s Hydraulic Attachment Tools division will become part of the newly formed Epiroc, dedicated to the mining and civil engineering sectors.
The division manufactures excavator attachment tools and has a 100-strong product range, including hydraulic breakers, cutters, pulverisers, bucket crushers, shears, grapples and magnets.
According to Atlas Copco, despite the change, it will be business as usual. Products will continue to be developed by the same research and development teams, manufactured in the same facilities and marketed by the same faces to the customer. From 1 January 2018, however, they will bear Epiroc branding.
“We are building on a very solid foundation in the industry,” says Goran Popovski, president of the Hydraulic Attachment Tools division. “Within Epiroc we can better focus on what is core for us: providing solutions and best support to our customers around the globe. Epiroc is a new player with a solid history in the market and our ambition is to continue to have market-leading positions in each market and each segment.”
