Atlas Copco Construction Tools opens a training centre for
construction tools in Kalmar, Sweden.

This new training centre will enable Atlas Copco to concentrate in a single location all its internal training activities for hydraulic attachments, handheld construction tools, maintenance, servicing and concrete and compression technology.

The 150 square-metre workshop houses up to six work stations, where products can be explained and servicing and maintenance tasks practised.

Atlas Copco employees from all over the world can try out construction tools for themselves in the centre?s large open space. All kinds of applications are possible, from concrete processing and compressing through to breaking with handheld tools and demolition and crushing with hydraulic attachments.

For presentations, the centre also features a training room for up to 40 people, which can also be divided into four group rooms. Thanks to portable technology modules, state-of-the-art presentation technology can be set up in each of the group rooms.

The centre also offers a further advantage in its close proximity to the company?s production facility in Kalmar, where lightweight hydraulic hammers and handheld construction tools are produced. ?We benefit very much from the support we receive from our employees in Kalmar,? affirms Peter Lauwers, Vice President Marketing at Atlas Copco Construction Tools.

?Continuous training is essential for our employees due to constant further development and products which need explanation,? continues Lauwers.?It is our aim to hold around 100 training days per year at our Kalmar training centre.?
