Before beginning the new year, we took some time to reflect on a busy yet successful 2017.
From expanding our company to partnering with amazing organizations, developing technologies and appointing a new president, we at Atlas Copco continued our commitment to sustainable productivity.
Here are some highlights from 2017:
Robert Eshelman: Atlas Copco Compressors LLC appointed Robert Eshelman as the new President and General Manager. His new position begins February 2018 where he’ll oversee Atlas Copco Compressors’ customer center in the United States and be responsible for all Atlas Copco Compressors’ sales, marketing and service operations.
CAN’d Aid: We partnered with the non-profit organization to provide drinking water for communities in need. With our donation of $50,000, CAN’d Aid has been able to supply 96,000 cans of water to victims of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico.
MDG rotary drum dryer: Unlike other dryers in the industry, the MDG rotary drum dryer is a revolutionary technology guaranteeing a stable pressure dew point of -40°F, at almost zero energy cost. The MDG air dryers deliver cost-effective, dry and oil-free air, with incredible power efficiency that has a total power consumption below 0.2 kW in all operational conditions. Its simplified design takes up less floor space, has no heating elements, no blower and no loss of compressed air. With fewer moving parts, the dryer requires less maintenance while offering more reliability than other dryers with -40°F PDP performance.
Glauber Equipment: Atlas Copco acquired Glauber Equipment, a compressor-related business that sells, rents, installs and services Atlas Copco products. The company has provided blower, compressor and vacuum systems in the Lancaster, N.Y., region since 1960, serving customers in food and beverage, pharmaceutical, environmental, chemical, textile, agricultural and other industries.
Water for All: Our employee-run organization collected more than $1 million in donations to provide safe drinking water for areas in need. Water for All is represented in 25 countries, and more than 5,000 Atlas Copco employees contribute annually. For every employee dollar donated, Atlas Copco contributes $2.
DigDeep: Atlas Copco’s Water for All organization donated to the human rights non-profit DigDeep to support St. Michaels Association for Special Education in Window Rock, AZ, the only special needs school on the Navajo Reservation. The donation will help the school access clean water for daily uses, including drinking, cooking and bathing.
