As a leader in the construction industry, most business owners and construction professionals have worked with an Atlas Copco hammer or breaker at some point. However, the company has a long history that even many Atlas Copco enthusiasts don’t fully know. Let’s take a look at three facts about Atlas Copco that you probably didn’t know.
Atlas Copco is all over the world. You’re just as likely to find an Atlas Copco hydraulic breaker in the West African country of Sierra Leone as you are to see one on the island nation of Indonesia! A global country, Atlas Copco tools and equipment are available in 180 countries on six of the seven continents.
Atlas Copco’s name comes from French. Have you ever wondered what the “Copco” in “Atlas Copco” stands for? The name comes from the French phrase “Compagnie Pneumatique Commerciale,” which roughly translates to “company that produces commercial tools powered by compressed air.”
Atlas Copco is headquartered in Sweden. Did you know that Atlas Copco is a Swedish company? It’s true! The company’s main headquarters is located in Nacka, Sweden, and was founded in 1873. However, the company does also have a subsidiary headquarters in Chicago and does most of its business in the United States and China.
