During this time, he significantly upgraded the business control environment in the U.S. Customer Center and made important contributions in many other areas including strategy, business development, acquisitions and business intelligence.

“I am looking forward to joining the professional team in the Power Technique Customer Center,” Andersson said. “We will continue to work hard to achieve our vision and be the First in Mind — First in Choice® provider of on-site air, power and flow solutions for the sustainable productivity of our business partners.”

Andersson joined Atlas Copco in 2002 as a Production Controller for Atlas Copco Rock Drills AB. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Business and Economics from Orebro University in Sweden, and a Bachelor of Science in Transport Management from Gothenburg University in Sweden.

Andersson will be based in Rock Hill, South Carolina, the home of Atlas Copco’s 180,000-square-foot manufacturing facility and North American headquarters.
