Hindustan Zinc Limited ( HZL) is a prestigious customer of Atlas Copco and has ordered a large  fleet of machines for their existing and new underground mines. When HZL decided to expand their operations and induct new mining equipment, Atlas Copco agreed to provide 24 x 7 support for these machines. This implies that Atlas Copco would maintain the machines which HZL operates. This support would cover twenty five thousand hours of operations or five years. To deliver on our promises, we felt a strong need to have a setup closer to the customer.
