May 8, 2009, SDE CC GC CMT of Atlas Copco held the Jidong Cement – Atlas Copco Strategic Partnership Agreement Signing Ceremony, which was a part of the event held in Nanjing, China of the 15th Anniversary Celebration of Atlas Copco (Nanjing) Construction and Mining Equipment Ltd. and the Inauguration of New Facility of Customer Center & Product Company.
Mr. Andreas Malmberg, President of Atlas Copco Surface Drilling Equipment AB, and Mr. Patrick Ye, Business Line Manager of SDE CC GC CMT, attended the ceremony. Journalists from more than 20 media organizations in the country also witnessed the ceremony.
As a world leading provider of industrial productivity solutions, Atlas Copco has been committed over the years to support the development of China’s mining industry, especially the cement industry, with its high performance equipment. Jidong Cement is the biggest cement manufacturer and supplier in North China. Atlas Copco started its cooperation with Jidong Cement since 1995. In the past 14 years, Atlas Copco has provided over 20 high performance hydraulic drills and many air compressors for Jidong Cement. “Jidong Cement is a respectable enterprise. It is the cradle of the new dry-process cement production technology in China and one of the biggest cement manufacturers and suppliers in China. It has already made and will continue to make great contribution to the China cement industry development and the country’s economic growth. Therefore, our two parties have reached a strategic partnership agreement in order to expand our cooperation. We believe by this strategic partnership agreement which meets the interests of both parties, will make our future cooperation even closer and better contribute to the development of the China cement industry,” said Mr. Andreas Malmberg excitedly at the ceremony.
On the day, the SDE also organized customers to experience the drill rig driving.
SDE Division of CMT owns a wide range of products. It exhibited seven models of drill rigs at the exhibition zone of the celebration, including the simple ROC P55 pneumatic drill rig, the advanced ROC D7C computerized drill rig, and ROC D7,  L6, L8, F9, which are well sold in the market, and ROC D7RRC remote control drill rig which guarantees operator safety. Customers, who rarely have the chance to be so close to Atlas Copco surface drilling equipment, eagerly took part in the trial driving after watching the operator’s demonstration. The trial driving certificates that contain on-site operation photos made customers even more enthusiastic to participate. ROC D7, ROC L6, and joystick-controlled ROC D7RRC drill rigs, which were provided for trial driving, made every customer highly praise their excellent performance. “Drill rig operation can be so easy and flexible! These are the machines we need!” they said.
