Atlas Copco Names Scott-Gallaher as Its New Dealer in VA

Wed June 16, 2004 - Northeast Edition

Atlas Copco Construction Tools has announced the addition of Scott-Gallaher Inc. as its new distributor of hydraulic breakers in the state of Virginia.

Founded in 1984, Scott-Gallaher Inc. currently has two Virginia locations that will sell, service and support Atlas Copco’s complete line of hydraulic breakers — all featuring Krupp percussion technology. This line of breakers includes 15 models with energy classes ranging from 200 to 15,000 ft./lbs., the largest production hydraulic breaker in the world.

“We’re proud to add Scott-Gallaher Inc. to our nationwide Atlas Copco dealer network,” said Peter Bigwood, president of Atlas Copco Construction Tools Inc. “Teaming a distributor known for high-quality service with our proven line of hydraulic breakers is a winning combination for our Virginia customers.”

Atlas Copco Construction Tools is a leading manufacturer of hydraulic breakers with products ranging from smaller hand-held tools to the largest weight class carrier attachments. Until the end of last year, Krupp percussion technology was available in the United States under the Allied brand. Following Atlas Copco’s acquisition of Krupp’s hammer business, the line is being exclusively marketed under the Atlas Copco brand.
