Atlas Copco Portable Air Becomes Portable Energy
Atlas Copco‘s Portable Air Division is changing its name to the Portable Energy Division, a name that more accurately reflects the division’s extended product portfolio. The new Portable Energy division focuses on five “pillars,” each one relating to a product group: air (on-site compressors), power (on-site generators), light (on-site light towers), water (on-site pumps), and used equipment.
The first two pillars, air and power, relate to products that the Portable Air Division has supplied for some years. Compressors were the main focus when the division was started 21 years ago and, during the last two years, the Portable Air Division has intensified its focus toward on-site generators. These products are now seen as part of its core business.
During 2010, the division added the third and fourth pillars, light and water. This was the result of special focus placed on the light tower business, and the addition of pumps to the product portfolio in September (the WEDA submersible pump line was transferred from the Construction Tools Division to the Portable Air Division).
