Atlas Copco Austria GmbH this week acquired Hartl Anlagenbau GmbH, Austria, a company that manufactures and sells mobile crushers and screeners.

Through this acquisition Atlas Copco will enter the growing mobile crushing and screening market, thereby strengthening the group’s offering in the areas of quarrying and recycling.

“The acquisition increases Atlas Copco’s participation in the customer value chain and makes us a more complete partner to our customers in these segments,” said Björn Rosengren, business area president of Atlas Copco Construction & Mining Technique.

Hartl Anlagenbau GmbH is a privately owned company based in St. Valentin, Austria, and currently employs 110 people. In 2009 the company’s total revenues were €21 million (about U.S. $26.6 million). The products are mainly distributed through a dealer network and partners. Hartl will become a product company within the Atlas Copco Surface Drilling Equipment division. The parties have agreed not to disclose the purchase price.

Headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden, Atlas Copco is an industrial group with global positions in compressors, construction and mining equipment, power tools and assembly systems.
