Atlas Copco Compressors opened a new distribution center in Rock Hill, SC. “Through our new distribution center in South Carolina we have the capability to deliver spare parts within 24 hours or less if that’s what the customer needs,” said Paul Hense, president of Atlas Copco Compressors LLC. “Our customers no longer have to worry about overseas shipping or potential delays in customs — they know they’ll get the parts they need the next morning, significantly reducing any downtime they may be experiencing.”

The distribution center is staffed by more than 30 full-time employees, who manage the shipping of an average of 1,000 order lines every day.

The opening of the new North American distribution center coincides with Atlas Copco’s North American headquarters relocation to Rock Hill from Westfield, MA. The distribution center is part of a 187,000 square-foot facility, consisting of corporate offices, manufacturing and distribution space for Atlas Copco portable and stationary compressors. The facility is also used for the production of compressors for the many multi-brands within Atlas Copco.
