Stockholm, Sweden, August 26, 2010: Today Atlas Copco has inaugurated a new distribution center in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA.
The new 12 000 square meters (131 000 square feet) facility substantially improves the storage and shipping capabilities for spare parts and consumables in the North American market. The increased parts capacity means customers in North America can now receive 24-hour delivery on all stocked parts.
“This investment shows our commitment to the North American market and our ambition to continuously improve customer satisfaction,” says Stephan Kuhn, Business Area President Atlas Copco Compressor Technique. “From this new distribution center we will supply all of the spare parts and consumables required for the products we service in North America.”
The custom-fitted facility will become the central distribution point for a wide variety of compressors, medical gas equipment and industrial and vehicle service tools, as well as thousands of spare parts and consumables under the Atlas Copco, BeaconMedæs, Desoutter and Chicago Pneumatic brands. The investment is approximately MSEK 44 (MUSD 6).
