Atlas Copco opens new US manufacturing plant

Atlas Copco has inaugurated a new plant that will make portable compressors and generators for the construction market, as well as medical gas products for hospitals.

Atlas Copco has invested US$25m in the new factory in Rock Hill, South Carolina, where some 330 employees will work.  The operations were moved from another facility in Rock Hill to the new building, which achieved Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design certification.

The building incorporates lean manufacturing designed to enable efficient and flexible processes that are especially productive and environmentally sustainable. The new facility also includes Atlas Copco’s US customer center.

“This state-of-the-art factory will improve our production capabilities, enhancing productivity for our customers in North America,” said Andrew Walker, president of the company’s construction technique business area.
