Atlas Copco India rolls out 50th Drill Jumbo-Boomer L2D
Pune, July 21, 2016: Atlas Copco (India) Ltd., a world-leading provider of sustainable productivity solutions, announced today that it handed over its 50th Drill Jumbo – Boomer L2D machine for the Indian market, made at its Nasik facility, to a leading customer.
This is the 50th Boomer L2D made in India since production of these machines started in the country in 2011. Manufacture of this range in India, meeting the highest global standards is a proud example of ‘Make in India’ from Atlas Copco.
This boomer will be used for one of the APCO Infratech Pvt Ltd’s prestigious tunneling project named Z Morh. The 6.5 km-long road tunnel project is part of a strategic plan to convert Srinagar-Leh highway into an all-weather road. This would avoid the regions of snowfall and avalanches and ensure smooth connectivity via a two-lane, 10 meter-wide tunnel.
Giovanni Valent, Managing Director, Atlas Copco (India) Ltd. Said, “I am very proud to be here today to celebrate this milestone. This shows our commitment towards maximizing environmental performance and building a better tomorrow for all our stakeholders in India.

Our equipment makes it easier for our clients in civil engineering to execute their projects with quicker deliveries of Boomer L2D and easier availability of parts and components”.
