Epiroc’s UK provides service and sales for our surface and underground drilling and tunnelling equipment including loading and haulage, hydraulic attachment tools, rock drilling tools and geotechnical equipment. Our sales and service team responsible for mining and demolition equipment have transferred from Atlas Copco to become part of the newly created company, Epiroc UK and Ireland Limited. Our products and factories are the same, staff are the same but we have a new dynamic name and image.
Our Head Office is in Hemel Hempstead and we have recently moved to a large premises in Grangemouth from our separate locations in Stirling. Our Grangemouth premises is now home to; our sales office that specialises in providing technical advice and support for civil engineering, geotechnical and water well drilling customers; our Geotechnical Drilling Tools global marketing and distribution team and our field based and workshop service facilities for all our products.
Epiroc is a leading productivity partner for the mining, civil engineering, infrastructure and natural resources industries. With cutting-edge technology, Epiroc develops and produces innovative drill rigs, tunnelling equipment, rock excavation, hydraulic attachment tools, and provides world-class service and consumables. The company was founded in Stockholm, Sweden, and has passionate people supporting and collaborating with customers in more than 150 countries.
The decision to split from Atlas Copco was to create two world-leading companies that were fully focused on their different end markets and demands. Epiroc’s customers are from the mining, civil engineering, infrastructure and natural resources industries, whilst Atlas Copco is more focused on manufacturing and process industries.
