Atlas Copco appointed Scott Carnell as president of its U.S. division. Carnell replaces Erik Sparby, who accepted the position of general manager at the company’s Customer Center CR Greater China.

In this role, Carnell will lead the company in growing each of its product lines, including construction tools, portable energy and road construction equipment within the contractor, dealer and rental industries across North America.

According to the company, Carnell brings more than 32 years – with 10 years at Atlas Copco – of industry experience to his role as president. Carnell previously served as the business line manager for the Atlas Copco portable energy business area, where he led the market expansion of the air compressor and generator lines. Prior to his new role, he was the president of Atlas Copco Rental in North America, which is based in LaPorte, Texas.

Carnell’s depth of knowledge of the company and its product lines will provide a seamless transition and allow him to ramp up efforts quickly, the company adds.

“Atlas Copco has always been committed to the success of this industry, which is also something I’m passionate about,” Carnell says. “I look forward to driving that commitment and building our support network in North America even further.”

Carnell will be based in Rock Hill, S.C., where Atlas Copco’s 180,000-sq.-ft. manufacturing facility will open in spring of 2017.

Atlas Copco operates in more than 90 countries. Its products include compressors, vacuum solutions and air-treatment systems, as well as construction and mining equipment, power tools and assembly systems.
