World centre for rock reinforcement

2004 Jun 15

A dedicated technology centre for the development of superior rock reinforcement products has been created to serve the worldwide mining and construction industries.

Atlas Copco?s first development centre dedicated to rock reinforcement technology has been set up in Europe with the aim of making rock excavation and underground operations safer and more productive. The centre, based in Feistritz/Drau, Austria ? in the heart of the hard rock Alpine region ? is the former headquarters of MAI Ankertechnik, makers of SDA self-drilling anchors, acquired by Atlas Copco in 2001.

Epiroc operated under the trademark “Atlas Copco” prior to January 1, 2018.
