Epiroc Group History

On February 21, 1873, Epiroc (then named Atlas Diesel) was founded in Stockholm, Sweden, as a manufacturer of products for railways. Over 140 years later the Mining and Rock Excavation division of Atlas Copco, now Epiroc is an industry benchmark with world-leading positions in underground trucks and loaders, surface and rotary blast hole rigs, exploration rigs, rock drilling tools but also in many other product areas. The company is also a leader in automation. Close cooperation with our customers, a constant drive to find a better way and commitment to keeping our promises have made Epiroc what it is today.
