The Stockholm, Sweden-based company operates in more than 170 nations. A fifth of its revenue is from the U.S., where it has more than 4600 employees, 109 locations and 1.7 million sq.ft. (158,000 m2) of manufacturing, production, distribution and office space.
“From our beginning in 1873 as a manufacturer of products for the railroad industry, we have expanded and adapted to hold world-leading positions in compressed air and gas equipment, construction and mining equipment, industrial tools and assembly systems,” said Jim Levitt, president of Atlas Copco North America.
The company’s U.S. business units will celebrate with customers throughout the year with local events, special offers, and rewards.
