Since its founding in 1950, Atlas Copco Peruana S.A. – the first Atlas Copco subsidiary in Latin America – has contributed to the development of the Peruvian mining.
And for more than 60 years, Atlas Copco maintained its leading position in Peru because of two simple strategies: close collaboration with customers in building both their businesses and introducing innovative and safe technologies to the industry.
Over time, mining companies readjusted their approach, with many of them focusing on production and processing, while allowing original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to maintain their equipment on site.
In 1998, Atlas Copco established a dedicated Service Contracts Area, composed of maintenance engineers, safety engineers, planners and technicians.
The Service Contracts Area is tasked with keeping the fleet of its customers running at predefined optimum levels and ensuring they meet their production targets. Simultaneously, the company prioritized safety and minimized environmental impact, while providing world-class service.
By introducing the latest technology in the Peruvian market, Atlas Copco has raised the safety standards in the industry, which is a paramount concern of the company and its customers. Its technology allows machinery to be controlled remotely or even without an operator in some circumstances.
Also, its machinery delivers repeatable results – straighter holes, correct orientation, right ergonomics, and easier self-diagnostics – and thus allows miners to optimize operational planning and execution.
To ensure that these high performance machinery operate at their peak potential, Atlas Copco offers after-sales service and continuing training – hands-on and simulated – for the technicians and operators of its customers.
For 65 years, Atlas Copco has stayed steadfast in its commitment to its customers even amid a decline in commodity prices and in its mission to develop solutions that will strengthen Peru’s mining industry.
