Atlas Copco buys H&F Drilling

Atlas Copco Construction & Mining has acquired UK-based H&F Drilling Supplies, one of the country’s largest independent manufacturers and distributors of drilling equipment.

H&F, one of Atlas Copco’s distributors in the UK, was founded in 1986 in Stirling, Scotland. The company provides complete packages of drilling equipment and bespoke solutions for a wide range of drilling applications, with in-house manufacturing facilities for casing and adaptors.

H&F has 20 employees and annual revenues of about £5.1Žmillion.

Kevin Prince, general manager of Atlas Copco’s Construction & Mining UK division, said: “With a strong service culture and emphasis on customer relationships, H&F is a good fit for the Atlas Copco group. The acquisition provides the possibility to enhance our product portfolio and presence in the drilling sector, creating increased sales opportunities across the UK.”

As of the September 1, H&F will become a wholly owned subsidiary of Atlas Copco, operating within the latter’s Construction & Mining Technique business area. The existing owner, John Henderson, and managing director, Kevin Mallin, have agreed to continue with the company on a consultancy basis.

Mr Henderson explained: “This acquisition will enable H&F to continue to service its customers in an even more proactive way, and, under the new ownership of the market leader, I believe we can add even more value to our products and services.”
