2011 Results

In 2011, Atlas Copco set new records for sales and operating profit.

For the full year, organic revenue grew 16% to SEK 81.2 billion, with a margin of 21.6%. In the near term, the overall demand for Atlas Copco’s products and services is expected to weaken somewhat from the currently high level.

“We’re at a good starting point, but have a challenging task ahead. The global outlook is difficult to predict, and we will continue seeking long- and short-term growth opportunities,” says Ronnie Leten. “During the fourth quarter, we invested in competency development in all markets, developed our manufacturing capacity in Asia, and made acquisitions to expand our presence and product offerings.”

In January, it was announced at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, that Atlas Copco has been included on the Global 100 list of the world’s most sustainable companies, ranked as number 10.

“Our goals for Atlas Copco’s sustainable, profitable development, which were introduced a year ago, are yielding results. We were very proud to see our work in this area recognized,” Leten said.
