Atlas Copco opens configuration center in Ohio

By |  June 27, 2013

Representatives from Atlas Copco Construction Equipment gathered earlier this month for a ribbon-cutting ceremony at their new configuration center in Independence, Ohio.

According to a company press release, the 150-ft.-long facility was built across from an existing Atlas Copco service center. Staff in the 9,000-sq.-ft. center will assemble hydraulic attachments and Weda submersible pumps. The existing service center will continue to refurbish and provide other technical services.

“Placing the configuration center at the Independence location makes shipping sense,” says Rock Stacy, Ohio operations manager for Atlas Copco Construction Equipment. “One-third of the U.S. makes up more than 59 percent of the market’s ‘weight footprint’ of hydraulic attachment customers, basically from Illinois to the Atlantic coast.”
