Atlas Copco Construction Equipment celebrated a ribbon cutting at its new configuration center in Independence, OH on June 13. The 150-foot-long facility was built across from a current Atlas Copco service center. Staff in the 9,000-square-foot configuration center will assemble hydraulic attachments and WEDA submersible pumps. The existing service center will continue to refurbish and provide other technical services.
