Atlas Copco’s holds MIM virtual breakfast morningMember News
Since the start of the pandemic, many businesses have struggled to network and build lasting relationships due to the lack of face to face contact. However, the Made in Group is committed to offering a platform to manufacturers that allow them to do this. That’s why we have brought back breakfast mornings in a virtual format.
With the chance to network, share best practices and build relationships with like-minded companies MIM members virtually gathered today for Atlas Copco’s breakfast morning. The event began with a short introduction from all 30+ members, giving them a chance to tell everyone who they are and what they do within their company.
After this Paul Clark, Business Line Manager at Atlas, held a presentation sharing some of their best practices and giving guests insight into their facility through video. Atlas Copco is made up of business divisions Compressor, Vacuum, Industrial and Power Technique.
Their Compressor Technique business area specialises in the production of air compressors using both oil-lubricated and oil-free technologies, as well as blowers, nitrogen and oxygen generators, air and gas treatment equipment and air management systems.
Their compressed air systems are used by industry leaders in the manufacturing, processing and oil & gas sectors. The air compressors they produce are ISO certified, Carbon Trust and BCAS approved. Atlas Copco Compressors UK and its local distributors provide comprehensive services including repairs, compressor parts, ad hoc compressor service, maintenance plans, monitoring and connectivity solutions.
Six years ago the group purchased Tentec - a tooling company that was family-owned for 50 years. Paul told members how the group decided to purchase Tentec in order to create a high-end tool division with an already established brand as he showed members their facility through a short video.
The purpose-built factory was built 3 years ago at Atlas’ facility in Hemel Hempstead and is used for special design and manufacture for bolts, usually used in the oil and gas industry. Following an insight into their tooling facility, members had the chance to look around their compressor house as well as having a look at some related products such as an energy recovery unit - which takes oil and converts it back to hot water, reusing used energy.
Finishing off the event, members networked in smaller groups through breakout sessions. This allows members to have more personalised conversations and build relationships with fellow MIM members.
