Over 140 years later the company is an industry benchmark with world-leading positions in compressors, tools and rock drills, but also in many other product areas. Close cooperation with our customers, a constant drive to find a better way and commitment to keeping our promises have made Atlas Copco what it is today.

Atlas Copco began its business in the Middle East region almost 50 years ago through its distributor in Oman. In 2005, its first branch in Middle East was opened in Mussafah, Abu Dhabi.
