Atlas Copco’s Power Technique business area is created from the people, products and technologies of the current Construction Technique business area. Moving forward, Power Technique will better reflect the product applications and industries served. The change is effective today.
The Power Technique name derives from the fact that power is the key term that customers identify with when it comes to the core product portfolio, consisting of air, power (including light) and flow. The business area serves multiple customer segments including construction, industrial, oil and gas, and petrochemicals.
“Construction customers will always be close to our core,” said Philip Herselman, General Manager, Power Technique (previously Construction Technique). “However, we serve customers in many segments, and the Power Technique name better reflects this and our offering.”
The business area will continue its focus on service through the Power Technique Service and Specialty Rental divisions. The Construction Tools division will dissolve into Portable Energy during the second half of 2017. From 2018, Construction Tools will no longer be an operating division.
During quarter 4 of 2017, the Portable Energy division will evolve into two focused divisions: Portable Air with portable compressors, construction tools and compaction and concrete products, and Power and Flow with generators, light towers and pumps. More details will be communicated later.
