Atlas Copco Peru Leads in Technology & Service Products

Since its founding in 1950, Atlas Copco Peruana S.A. – the first Atlas Copco subsidiary in Latin America – has contributed to the development of the Peruvian mining.

And for more than 60 years, Atlas Copco maintained its leading position in Peru because of two simple strategies: close collaboration with customers in building both their businesses and introducing innovative and safe technologies to the industry.

Always hands-on attention from Atlas Copco

Over time, mining companies readjusted their approach, with many of them focusing on production and processing, while allowing original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to maintain their equipment on site.

In 1998, Atlas Copco established a dedicated Service Contracts Area, composed of maintenance engineers, safety engineers, planners and technicians.

The Service Contracts Area is tasked with keeping the fleet of its customers running at predefined optimum levels and ensuring they meet their production targets. Simultaneously, the company prioritized safety and minimized environmental impact, while providing world-class service.

By introducing the latest technology in the Peruvian market, Atlas Copco has raised the safety standards in the industry, which is a paramount concern of the company and its customers. Its technology allows machinery to be controlled remotely or even without an operator in some circumstances.

Also, its machinery delivers repeatable results – straighter holes, correct orientation, right ergonomics, and easier self-diagnostics – and thus allows miners to optimize operational planning and execution.

To ensure that these high performance machinery operate at their peak potential, Atlas Copco offers after-sales service and continuing training – hands-on and simulated – for the technicians and operators of its customers.

For 65 years, Atlas Copco has stayed steadfast in its commitment to its customers even amid a decline in commodity prices and in its mission to develop solutions that will strengthen Peru’s mining industry.

When Cajamarca-native Cesar Acuña Peralta founded Universidad Cesar Vallejo (UCV) in 1991, he envisioned an institution that would raise the standard of education in Peru. Amid the rapid changes in the country’s economy and society since then, the school remains steadfast in its commitment to uplift the lives of all Peruvians – wealthy or not.

“Due to its history, Peru has the distinct advantage in Latin America of being already familiar with Asian cultures, particularly Chinese, which creates an environment of safety, acceptance and social integration.” - UCV Marketing Manager César Acuña Núñez    

“We take pride in helping people change their lives. We strongly believe that a lack of finances should not prevent anyone from receiving a quality education,” said UCV Marketing Manager César Acuña Núñez.

As Peru continues to attract foreign investment and form business partnerships, UCV is looking toward Asia to further expand its alliances with educational institutions across the Pacific.

With links to 70 universities outside of Peru, including China, UCV has benefited from its partnerships with Asian schools given their shared values and strength in entrepreneurship and innovation, which have played significant roles in the rapid development of Peru and its Asian neighbors.

“Due to its history, Peru has the distinct advantage in Latin America of being already familiar with Asian cultures, particularly Chinese, which creates an environment of safety, acceptance and social integration,” explained Acuña.

Through innovative teaching methods and activities, UCV continues to cultivate innovation and entrepreneurship into its students, as it seeks to strengthen the level of exchange between students, faculty and investors.

With Lima accounting for nearly two-thirds of the country’s population of around 30 million, the Peruvian capital continues to attract the bulk of domestic business and foreign capital in South America’s newest emerging economy.

Meanwhile, Peru’s other cities have aroused interest among businesses looking for locations that offer more competitive costs.

Mindful of this advantage and con_ dent in their extensive expertise and experience, Solari, D’Auriol & Asociados Abogados (SD Law) has set up offices in the country’s other major cities to cater to these prospective investors.

“Our vision was to be one of the first firms that has branches in other important cities where legal issues needed better attention, better advice,” said Managing Partner Pablo Solari.

With branch offices in Chincha and Ica and associate offices in Piura and Chiclayo, SD Law brings with it a solid reputation for being experts in land titling, real estate, infrastructure, authorizations and peasant communities, as well as in litigation. The firm also takes much pride in its extensive network and close attention given to all its clients.

Of its clients outside Lima, SD Law has focused mostly on the agribusiness industry, such as vegetable and fruit growers Corporación Agroindustrial Beta, Campos del Sur, Agricola Cerro Prieto, and Valle y Pampa among others.

Aside from the agricultural sector, the practice has also advised its client for the country’s Camiesa liquefied natural pipeline project, Peru LNG’s liquefied gas plant project and STX Heavy Industries’ bid to build ships for the Peruvian

“Wherever our clients come from, we can manage all their legal issues that they may have. If we can’t at the moment, then we will find a way to make things happen,” said Solari.
