Epiroc has its roots in Atlas Copco, which was founded in 1873 in Stockholm. It was created as a result of Atlas Copco’s decision to split out its legacy business of mining equipment.
Atlas Copco began to produce rock drills in 1905. In January 2017, Atlas Copco’s Board of Directors decided to propose to the Annual General Meeting that the company be divided and the mining and infrastructure business be listed as its own separate company in 2018.
Epiroc was officially created on 01 January 2018 & subsequently got listed on Nasdaq Stockholm stock exchange on June 18, 2018. Epiroc is a leading productivity partner for the mining and infrastructure industries. With cutting-edge technology, the company develops and produces innovative equipment, consumables and service for use in surface and underground mining, infrastructure, civil works, well drilling and geotechnical applications.
