Atlas Copco: Atlas Copco awards recognize innovative vacuum pump and customer-focused sales in China

Stockholm, Sweden, February 24, 2016: Atlas Copco's most prestigious
awards this year recognize the development of an innovative vacuum
pump, and the customer-centered marketing of industrial tools for
automotive manufacturers in China.

The John Munck Award for technical innovations goes to a team of six
people at Atlas Copco's Vacuum Solutions division: Andries Desiron,
Mark S. Taylor, Glenn Vinck, Joeri Coeckelbergs, Jens Boeckx and
Werner De Bruyn. The team developed a rotary screw vacuum pump (GHS
VSD+), which was introduced in 2015 and is quickly gaining popularity
with customers.

The vacuum pump incorporates much of the celebrated variable speed
drive compressor technology. It is a quiet, intelligent and highly
efficient machine, consuming only about half the energy of
traditional vacuum pumps. Because of its ability to control the
pressure very accurately, customers get faster and more reliable

"The new break-through vacuum pump and the sales approach in China are
both the result of innovative thinking that focuses on customers'
needs," said Ronnie Leten, Atlas Copco's President and CEO. "We
always strive for solutions that increase value for customers."

The Peter Wallenberg Award is presented to a team at Atlas Copco's
Motor Vehicle Industry Tools and Assembly Systems division: Tomas
Lundin, Tylong Li, Stephen Chen and Lancer Chen. They brought the
sales teams in China closer to the customers, enhancing the value
provided to the automotive manufacturers. This has helped
significantly increase sales to the motor vehicle industry in China
the past few years.

The John Munck Award, established in 1991, is presented each year to a
product developer, designer or a team for outstanding contributions
to the overall quality of an Atlas Copco product. The Peter
Wallenberg Marketing and Sales Award -- named after Atlas Copco's
former Honorary Chair -- recognizes the most innovative successfully
implemented method in the field of sales and marketing. The award was
established in 1996. The awards will be presented to the winners at
the Annual General Meeting on April 26, 2016. For information on
past award winners, please see
