On Wednesday 26th of March it was time to meet up with Atlas Copco (AC Holding) at their Tokyo office. We had the honor to meet the General Manager, Thomas Östergren, and the Holding HR Manager, Grace Tokue Sumoto, who both have worked at AC for several years.
Atlas Copco was founded in Sweden in 1873 and is now a worldwide company that manufactures industrial tools and equipment. Today there are approximately 40 000 employees in more than 20 countries.
There have been a couple of students that have carried through master theses and internships at Altas Copco Japan and both Thomas and Grace are positive towards future projects. Knowing Japanese is a big plus.
