Atlas Copco: First in Mind, First in Choice

“Innovation isn’t all about product; innovation is also about valuing your clients.”- Stephan Kuhn, Business Area President, Compressor Technique, Atlas Copco AB
How many times you have seen an organisation maintains healthy growth for more than 100 years? How many times you have seen an organisation involves its clients to innovate products? How many times you have seen a species of fossil is named after a global manufacturer?
If you don’t have enough names, consider Atlas Copco, founded as AB Atlas in 1873. Since then the company has been providing industrial productivity solutions to more than 170 countries. Having manufacturing products on 68 production sites in 20 countries, Atlas Copco has become world’s leading producer of air compressors.
Atlas Copco’s vision — First in Mind, First in Choice — drives its strategy to create positive value for customers, shareholders and employees in an increasingly resource-constricted world. In a recently press meet at its Chakan plant, who’s who from the Atlas Copco share why Atlas Copco has become O Rei for its customers and prospects for all brands.
InnovationWith a tradition of innovation dating back to the group’s founding in 1873, the group operates through a number of divisions within four business areas: compressor technique, construction technique, mining and rock excavation technique, and industrial technique.
