In 1968, the then CEO and President of Atlas Copco, Kurt-Allan Belfrage, decided to reward the hard work and dedication of his longest-serving employees by making them members of an elite club. To this day the Gold Club connects people around the world long after they have retired and keeps the spirit and culture of Atlas Copco alive. There are currently over 4000 members worldwide, representing more than 100 000 years of combined experience.
The club is open to anyone who has worked for Atlas Copco for a total of 25 years, regardless of whether they have been continuously employed or not. The club also takes into account the years of service staff have put in at newly acquired companies after they have worked at Atlas Copco for five years.
