Ronnie Leten, President and CEO, confirms Atlas Copco’s most recent outlook statement, that the overall demand for the Group’s products and services is expected to increase somewhat in the near term.
“The market has been mixed this year, with healthy demand from industrial manufacturing customers and softer activities in the mining and construction segments,”
said Ronnie Leten. “We are continuing to adapt wherever needed. We remain highly focused on providing our customers with innovative products and service to enhance their productivity and competitiveness.”
The capital markets day begins with presentations by Ronnie Leten; Hans Ola Meyer, Chief Financial Officer; and the Business Area Presidents: Nico Delvaux, Compressor Technique; Mats Rahmström, Industrial Technique; Johan Halling, Mining and Rock Excavation Technique; and Andrew Walker, Construction Technique.
Special focus will be on innovation and Atlas Copco’s business in the United States, and the day includes an exhibition at the company’s factory in Rock Hill, South Carolina. Innovative features to be discussed include:
- Assembly technologies for lightweight materials in the automotive and other industries.
- The enormous energy savings realized with the variable-speed drive compressors championed by Atlas Copco. The company will also present breakthrough energy effective vacuum pumps with variable-speed drive technology that are not yet in the market.
- Automation in the mining industry, a key feature for increased productivity and safety.
- New energy efficient and productive products for the construction industry, such as diesel-driven pumps.
