Atlas Copco Ireland, the country’s leading total solutions provider for compressed air and industrial gas markets, has officially opened its new state-of-the-art headquarters in Dublin. The building is an ample 560 min size and will be the permanent new workplace for the company’s 32 local employees. The move provides a wide range of benefits, including excellent transport links, an open-plan office area to enable staff to communicate and work more effectively; as well as a large purpose-built workshop and warehouse area that ensures customer requirements are met efficiently.

The recent grand opening of the building, which is located in the heart of West Dublin’s Pharmaceutical district, was host to The Swedish Ambassador to Ireland, Her Excellency Anna Brandt, and to Market Area Director at Business Sweden, Gustaf Bergström.

The opening ceremony was attended by all of the Atlas Copco management and staff who will be situated at the office in Dublin.

The special guests were hosted by senior spokespeople from the global Atlas Copco Group, which is the world’s leading provider of sustainable productivity solutions. This included Andrew Walker, President of the Atlas Copco Power Technique business area; Alain De Dauw, Vice President of Human Resources for the Atlas Copco Oil Free Air division; and Alexander Pavlov, Former Country Manager for Atlas Copco Ireland and current General Manager for Atlas Copco Compressor Technique in the United Kingdom. This was in addition to all of the management and staff who will be situated at the office in Dublin.

The advantages to be gained from the move will play strongly into the company’s customer-focused vision, as Micheál McGuinness, Country Manager for Compressor Technique at Atlas Copco Ireland, commented: “We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our customers, past and present, for their custom over the years and look forward to welcoming them to our new head office in Dublin. Our mission is to help customers protect their investment in high quality machinery, avoid unexpected situations and increase uptime – a goal we feel we are expertly placed to fulfill even more effectively from our new premises.”

210 mof Atlas Copco Ireland’s Head Office is dedicated to a large workshop and warehouse area. The purpose-built workshop facility provides a safe working environment for service technicians and contains state-of-the-art power tools and lifting equipment to ensure quick turnaround times when performing maintenance and overhauls of major pieces of customer equipment; such as compressor blocks, industrial air elements and gear box assemblies.

Meanwhile, the warehouse area contains a generous amount of racking space to store equipment, together with an improved flow of parts inventory to further ensure Atlas Copco Ireland is able to provide the best possible lead and service times for customers and maintain its position as a market leader.

Atlas Copco Ireland foresees many aspects of its new headquarters that will offer benefits for both staff members and customers alike. For instance, the building’s convenient proximity to the M50 motorway will ensure that deliveries are more efficient and travel is easier for anybody visiting the company’s head office.

In addition to the external benefits of the location, the newly overhauled open plan office enables team members to fully embrace an activity based working style; which has been shown to lend itself to easier communication and increased productivity.
