Atlas Copco Power Technique appointed Mikael Andersson as president of its power and flow division, effective Feb. 1.

In the new position, Andersson will be responsible for the global operations of the division within the Power Technique business area. The power and flow division designs, develops, manufactures and sells generators, light towers and pumps.

Andersson is currently general manager of Atlas Copco’s Power Technique North America, a position he has held since 2018. In this position, Atlas Copco says he led the company in growing each of its core product categories – air, power and flow – within the contractor, dealer and rental segments in the U.S. and Canada.

Andersson has held a variety of roles within Atlas Copco since he started working with the company in 2002, the company says.

“Mikael has good experience from his time in Power Technique,” says Andrew Walker, business area president of Power Technique. “With his proven track record in management, finance, as well as sales and service development, he will take the division to the next level.”

Andersson will continue to work in Rock Hill, South Carolina, the home of Atlas Copco’s 180,000-sq.-ft. manufacturing facility.
