Atlas Copco to launch Krupp-based hydraulic hammers in U.S., Canada

Following its acquisition last year of Krupp Berco Bautechnik, Atlas Copco Construction Tools will begin marketing Jan. 1 a range of hydraulic hammers in the United States and Canada based on Krupp percussion technology. Krupp technology has been incorporated in hydraulic hammers sold under the Allied brand for many years in the United States and Canada. Atlas Copco’s OEM agreement with Allied Construction Products for the supply of Krupp components will end Dec. 31. After that, Atlas Copco will offer the full range of Krupp technology direct from its sister company in Germany. The hammers will be sold under the Atlas Copco brand. Atlas Copco Construction Tools is expanding its distribution network across North America to service and sell the breakers.
