Atlas Copco among the Top 50 World Construction Machinery Manufacturers for 2015
Beijing, China, September 21, 2015: Atlas Copco, a leading provider of sustainable productivity solutions, was included in the 2015 top-50 world construction machinery manufacturers and ranked No.10. The list presents the general performance of construction machinery manufacturers in the previous year.
The market for the global construction machinery industry has seen a downturn in recent years. Total sales in 2014 of the global top 50 enterprises is approximately USD159.5 billion, with a year-on-year decline of 10.67%, especially in the mining industry sector. "There is less expectation for investment in new equipment in the current market, while existing equipment still enjoys a favorable utilization rate. As a result, we are seeing an increase in demand for services. We can provide quality parts and services for customers, and benefit our customers by improving the utilization rate of equipment," says Markku Teräsvasar, President of Atlas Copco Mining and Rock Excavation Service, during the T50 Leader Dialogues, "I'm confident that, after years of equipment operation with low substitution rate, an excellent market growth is foreseeable."
Freddy Man, General Manager of Atlas Copco Mining and Rock Excavation Technique Customer Center in Greater China, was given the 2015 Transnational Corporation Manager Award, and named senior enterprise leader that best understands the customers of China mining equipment.
