The grand opening of the building, which is located in the heart of West Dublin’s Pharmaceutical district, took place on 26 January and was host to The Swedish Ambassador to Ireland, Her Excellency Anna Brandt, and to market area director at Business Sweden, Gustaf Bergström.
The special guests were hosted by senior spokespeople from the global Atlas Copco Group. This included Andrew Walker, president of the Atlas Copco Power Technique business area, Alain De Dauw, vice president of Human Resources for the Atlas Copco Oil Free Air division and Alexander Pavlov, former country manager for Atlas Copco Ireland and current general manager for Atlas Copco Compressor Technique in the United Kingdom.
210 m2 of Atlas Copco Ireland’s Head Office is dedicated to a large workshop and warehouse area.
The purpose-built workshop facility provides a safe working environment for service technicians and contains state-of-the-art power tools and lifting equipment to ensure quick turnaround times when performing maintenance and overhauls of major pieces of customer equipment; such as compressor blocks, industrial air elements and gear box assemblies.
Meanwhile, the warehouse area contains racking space to store equipment, together with an improved flow of parts inventory to further ensure Atlas Copco Ireland is able to provide the best possible lead and service times for customers.
Micheál McGuinness, country manager for Compressor Technique at Atlas Copco Ireland, said: “We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our customers, past and present, for their custom over the years and look forward to welcoming them to our new head office in Dublin. Our mission is to help customers protect their investment in high quality machinery, avoid unexpected situations and increase uptime – a goal we feel we are expertly placed to fulfil even more effectively from our new premises.”
