1 min read

Atlas Copco Compressors has appointed Stef Lievens (pictured) as business line manager of its Industrial Air division in the UK.

A Belgian citizen, Lievens has a Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering and Business Administration from the University of Leuven, Belgium. In 2010, he joined Atlas Copco’s production facility in Antwerp as a manufacturing engineer, and in 2015 transferred to Atlas Copco’s UK customer centre as business line manager for service operations within the Compressor Technique Service (CTS) division.

In his new role, Lievens and his sales team will continue the division’s customer-centric focus on offering reliable compressed air and industrial gas solutions . In addition to this, the division will seek to raise awareness of complementary technologies that offer improved productivity.

Commenting on his new position, Lievens said: “My primary aims are threefold. Firstly, changing the perception of Atlas Copco as just a compressor supplier to one in which we’re seen, correctly, as a provider for compressed air and industrial gas solutions including quality air solutions. Secondly, taking on a greater consultancy role within the industry, in which we help to educate air users about the benefits of investing in energy-efficient equipment. Finally, continuing to embrace the unstoppable movement towards big data and the IoT by extending full internet connectivity to the next generation of compressed air systems.”

In addition to his mainstream activities, a secondary role will include the investigation of funding initiatives to support investment in energy-efficient equipment and raising awareness of these opportunities within the division’s customer base.
