“Despite theuncertain international market, the Chinese market has always maintained stable demands. So we have been actively looking for local partners and hope that we can complement each other and achieve a win-win situation in the Chinese market”, said Victor Tapia, President of Atlas Copco Geotechnical Drilling and Exploration Division. According to the agreement, Atlas Copco and Wuxi Drilling Tools Factory will have access to each others sales channels for mutual benefit. Both parties are also looking into potential joint participations in the deep-hole projects of the government and the universities. We will work together to promote the Atlas Copco brand, enhance customer relationships, and win more business opportunities for each other.
