Epiroc appointed Jon Torpy as general manager and president. The appointment is effective May 1.

In his new role, Torpy will be responsible for leading the company’s U.S. Customer Center, which supplies drill rigs, rock excavation and construction equipment, and tools. He will be based in Denver.

“Jon’s strategic mindset and outstanding industry track record make him well suited to deliver on our Epiroc vision of becoming and remaining the customer’s first choice in the United States,” says Jose Sanchez, president of the Epiroc drilling solutions division.

Torpy most recently served the company as vice president of marketing for the drilling solutions division, where he led Epiroc’s autonomous drill program.

Torpy began his career with Ingersoll-Rand Drilling Solutions in 1999 as an application manager before the company was acquired by Atlas Copco, now Epiroc, serving as regional manager of Latin America and Canada. He also previously held positions as district manager and business line manager.

“I’m excited to work with our committed people to be the strongest partner for our U.S. customers,” Torpy says. “By staying true to our core values of innovation, commitment and collaboration, we will provide customers with the performance they need to succeed today and the technology to lead in the future.”
