With effect from 1 July, the portable air division of Atlas Copco is now known as Portable Energy. According to the company, the change is to better reflect the division's extended portfolio, which now includes lights and pumps in addition to its established compressors and generators.
These four product groups with the addition of the division's Used Equipment operation are considered to be the five pillars (air, power, light, water and used equipment) that the newly named division will focus on.
According to Portable Energy division president Geert Follens, "changing the name of the division to Portable Energy is a logical step in light of the extension of our product range to our customers. With the five pillars we can offer our customers complete portable energy solutions. This extended product offering, together with the intensified focus on the construction business as a part of the new Construction Technique business area, will provide us with the tools we need to give our customers the right focus and the best service."
