Epiroc created as Atlas Copco splits into separate mining-focused industrial businesses

Atlas Copco has divided its operations to create a new company with a focus on the mining and civil industries; Epiroc. Atlas Copco, one of the world’s leading providers of productivity solutions, has carefully picked the name Epiroc as a representation of the company’s philosophy. With Epi meaning “on” or “at” in Latin and Greek and Roc signalling stability and durability.

Epiroc benefits from more than 140 years’ experience of Atlas Copco. The new company will retain the same products, manufacturing and marketing organisation as well as the people from Atlas Copco’s mining and rock excavation division. It will however, have a completely new board and growth targets.
