Atlas Copco Construction Mining Technique USA LLC last week signed an agreement with Casagrande USA to become the exclusive distributor of Casagrande’s complete line of geotechnical and foundation-drilling products for the Midwestern United States. These products will be supported from Atlas Copco’s Milwaukee Company Store, which already offers a range of ground engineering products such as down-the-hole hammers, Symmetrix overburden drilling systems, MAI, and Swellex bolts, as well as drilling rigs and air compressors.
The agreement was formalized in a meeting in Casagrande’s booth while top management from both the Sweden-based Atlas Copco and Italy-based Casagrande were in the United States for ConExpo.
Hans Lidén, president of Atlas Copco’s Geotechnical Drilling and Exploration division based near Stockholm, Sweden, said at the signing, “We look forward to a successful strategic alliance. Our ability to service the customer fits well with Casagrande’s high-quality equipment, and together our people are all excited about the opportunity to better support the customer.”
The agreement is effective immediately, making Atlas Copco a licensed distributor for Casagrande. A dedicated team to support these products has already been assembled.
