Adhesive bonding specialist changes name at the turn of the year

SCA Schucker will be Atlas Copco IAS GmbH

The former SCA Schucker GmbH & Co. KG, Bretten, will change its name at the turn of the year. In the future, it will act as Atlas Copco IAS GmbH and thus under the strong brand name of the parent company Atlas Copco. The company will then be able to offer several joining technologies under one roof – in particular SCA’s adhesive bonding, sealing and metering technology as well as the solutions of its sister company Henrob GmbH, which is the market leader in self‐pierce riveting
systems. All products of these divisions will be marketed under the Atlas Copco brand.

“This will allow us to rely even more intensively on the globally active Atlas Copco organization. It makes us an even stronger partner for our customers an suppliers,” emphasizes Olaf Leonhardt, Managing Director with SCA Schucker GmbH & Co. KG in Bretten. “Our ambition is to be the central contact for our business partners around the globe for multiple joining technologies.” The change of name is part of the Atlas Copco’s global strategy of providing its customers with as many services as possible from a single source.

SCA has been part of the Atlas Copco Group since 2011, Henrob joined the parent company in 2014. Both form the core units of Atlas Copco’s Industrial Assembly Solutions division (IAS). The brand name SCA will be retained as a product line, but in the future the systems will be marketed in a new design and under the Atlas Copco brand. The first new product designs will be presented to the public in March 2018, when the newly created and expanded Bretten plant will be inaugurated.
