Atlas Copco Construction Equipment last week announced that as of July 1, responsibility for the Grimmer Schmidt portable compressors and utility units will fall under it instead of Atlas Copco Hurricane.
At the same time, the Grimmer Schmidt brand of portable compressors and utility units will transition to the Chicago Pneumatic brand. The CP compressors will be manufactured in both Franklin, Ind., and Rock Hill, S.C.
By merging the brands, Atlas Copco and its dealers will be able to offer a wider range of mobile and skid-mounted compressors, supported by field sales, all under the CP brand, complementing the offering of pneumatic, handheld hydraulic and boom-mounted hydraulic CP tools, the company says.
Headquartered in Commerce City, Colo., Atlas Copco Construction Equipment is responsible for the sales, aftermarket service and rental of portable compressors, generators, tools and attachments used in the construction and demolition industries.
