STOCKHOLM – Beginning Jan. 1, 2018, the hydraulic attachment tools division within Atlas Copco will become part of the Epiroc, the company that Atlas Copco plans to dividend out in mid-2018. The division manufactures excavator attachment tools such as hydraulic breakers, cutters, pulverizers, bucket crushers, shears, grapples and magnets. Also effective from that date, all the division’s current products will be delivered with Epiroc product branding.
The world’s largest hydraulic breaker, the HB 10000, made its debut recently in Saudi Arabia.
The hydraulic attachment tools division has been a technology leader for more than 50 years. The product range today includes 100 different hydraulic attachment tools, and is designed to ensure that customers can always find the right tool for their specific application and excavator.
Among others, the division manufactures the HB 10000, the largest serial hydraulic breaker in the world – every punch equals the weight of 130 elephants.
For the hydraulic attachment tools division, it will be business as usual. Products will be manufactured in the same facilities as today, developed by the same R&D teams and marketed by the same faces to the customer.
After shareholders´ approval, in 2018, Atlas Copco will become two separate global groups of companies: Atlas Copco, focused on industrial customers, and Epiroc, focused on mining, infrastructure and natural resources equipment.
