Atlas Copco are experts on working with our clients' main challenges. When all the challenges are addressed, focus can shift to parameters like productivity enhancement, ergonomics and operator security.”

Manufacturers of home appliances that most of us use every day, from washing machines and fridges to air conditioning and vacuuming, understand the inconvenience of having to go without these items due to faulty design or malfunction. Atlas Copco provide tools for low-reaction tightening useful for any number of everyday appliances - their manual, electric and pneumatic tools provide flexibility for servicing and repair, and error-proofing solutions such as sealed expanders and operator panels ensure quality control.
