Atlas Copco has invested MINR 800 (MSEK 110) in the expansion of the factory in Hyderabad, India, doubling its capacity. The plant manufactures drilling consumables for surface mining applications. The expansion of the plant, which already employs some 200 people, will generate employment for about 35 additional people.

The new facility includes a world-class R&D test centre for rock drilling products, enabling Atlas Copco to further increase customers’ competitiveness.
