Welcome to issue 3 of Productivity Magazine.

With spring just around the corner, it is gradually becoming clear that this year is bringing new challenges that resemble past ones. We face issues that keep us busy at work and at home. Despite all this, I hope this material contains something of interest to you, our readers.

So, what topics does this new issue of Productivity Magazine cover?

First, we introduce our CEO, Mr Ronnie Leten, who will share his ideas on changing the world and how he wants to lead Atlas Copco to sustainable productivity.

Then we share a unique feature of our Atlas Copco building in Sweden. It has a full-fledged underground mine that can be visited by taking a regular lift right from the entry hall of the Nacka facility in Stockholm. It opens the way to Atlas Copco’s history.

Later we introduce one of our organization’s latest developments: a strong new Product marketing management team. I have managed to entice young but experienced members of my team of sales engineers to join this newly created structure. They are responsible for ensuring that our customers can fully benefit from the efficiencies of our newly introduced products. 

We also present another country in our region: Slovakia. This is close to my heart, because I moved to Bratislava three years ago and continue to explore the culture, history and customs of this proud nation. I hope you will be as attracted to it as I am.

We will also share the concept behind our Lean Assembly Excellence Centre, which is in the final stages of construction as I write these words. By the time you read this, it will be up and running. Again, this involves a unique concept in the region that will help our customers understand ways to improve their operational efficiency. We simulate a real production line with several assembly and quality control stations to help our customers’ teams understand how they can affect the efficiency of their operations. This reduces the costs of production and quality by streamlining their processes and renewing the equipment in their manufacturing base. “This is what we call sustainable productivity.”

Last but certainly not least, as in previous issues, we let you – our customers – share your personal successes and tell others how you have improved your own sustainable productivity, sometimes with a little help from our team.

So, happy reading! Best regards, Wojciech
