Atlas Copco has acquired Hartl Anlagenbau's product line
Atlas Copco has expanded its offering to the quarrying sector with acquisition of Austria-based mobile crushing and screening manufacturer Hartl Anlagenbau. The company has said that entering the growing mobile crushing and screening market will strengthen the group’s position in the area of quarrying and recycling.
“The acquisition strengthens Atlas Copco’s position as market leader within surface rock excavation and handling, as well as within recycling and road construction,” said Atlas Copco surface drilling equipment division president Andreas Malmberg. “The product-line complements our current product-offering and makes us an even more complete partner. Our customers will benefit from having the same supplier for drill rigs, breakers, road construction equipment as well as mobile crushers and screeners.”
The company will continue to market Hartl Anlagenbau’s product line under the Powercrusher name but will be rebranded as Atlas Copco. The track mounted range covers jaw crushers, impact crushers and cone crushers with a crushing capacity ranging from 200-500tonnes per hour, and screeners with a crushing capacity of 200-400tonnes per hour.
Atlas Copco surface drilling equipment division vice president marketing Göran Johansson said, “The features of these products fit very well with the benefits we give our drill rig customers. The current generation of Powercrushers combines a straightforward design and user-friendliness with long-term reliable performance. For example, the jaw crushers’ unique Quattro-movement gives optimally -sized end materials.”
The Powercrusher products are mainly distributed through a dealer network and the majority of the sales are in the US, Russia and Western Europe. Atlas Copco has said that introducing the Powercrusher products to its existing world-wide network for sales and support within the company, will increase the possibility to serve the market with its products.
