“We couldn’t have found a more inviting and supportive community for our new offices in Rock Hill,” said Robert Eshelman, President and General Manager of Atlas Copco Compressors LLC. “Since we expanded here 20 years ago, we’ve continued to invest in the greater Charlotte community. The area offers top talent and gives us the resources we need to continue innovating, which is a pivotal part of our commitment to global manufacturing excellence.”
Close to 150 employees from Atlas Copco Compressors, Chicago Pneumatic Compressors and Pneumatech, Inc. are relocating to the new space. They have offices on the fifth floor and training rooms on the first floor for a total of 38,000 square feet. The office features an open floor plan designed to foster collaboration among employees, spark innovation and take advantage of the office’s natural light from the long wall of windows and high ceilings.
