A little history…

Founded in 1873 as AB Atlas, the company began by suppling products for rail and construction, before branching out into other areas, including tool machinery.

The early 1900s saw the creation of a pneumatics department and the development of the company’s first piston compressor.

After merging with a diesel company, the business was renamed Atlas Diesel; when this side of the business was dropped, the name Atlas Copco came into use in 1956.


Today, the company has a presence in more than 180 countries, with sales hubs and customer centres across the globe. Its headquarters are in Stockholm, Sweden, and there is a strong UK presence based in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire.

A few fascinating facts…

  • The first UK Atlas Copco sales office and production plant was opened in 1919.
  • At least 100,000 photographs from Atlas Copco’s history are stored in the Centre for Business History in a giant vault in Stockholm, Sweden.
  • Water for allWater for All – a non-profit organisation that helps to drill or dig new wells or protect natural springs – was established in 1984 and is funded and managed by Atlas Copco employees.
  • Every Atlas Copco employee is given The Atlas Copco Book, which explains the company’s corporate culture, including the motto: “There is always a better way”.
