Epiroc says it has decided to move away from the concrete spraying business and will phase out its operations later this year.
Epiroc develops and manufactures six products within the concrete spraying line in its Örebro, Nashik and Nanjing facilities. This business was expanded back in 2013 when Epiroc (then Atlas Copco) acquired MEYCO.
Sarah Hoffman, Vice President Marketing for the Underground division at Epiroc, said the company constantly reviews its customer solutions “to ensure we keep Epiroc strong and agile for the future”.
She added: “This work is a natural part of product life cycle management, required to ensure a healthy, profitable and competitive portfolio.
“We will phase out the concrete spraying line within 2020 while evaluating other alternatives for this portfolio.”
