STOCKHOLM -- April 8, 2013

Atlas Copco’s (STO:ATCOA) (STO:ATCOB) two most prestigious awards will this
year recognize the development of an innovative screwdriver system as well as
enhanced customer service. The awards will be presented to the winners at the
Annual General Meeting on April 29.

The John Munck Award for technical innovations is presented to the team that
developed a superior screwdriver solution for the electronics industry: Jubin
Ghassabei, Johan Wallgren, Göran Johansson, Jonas Elofsson, Mamoon Parwani and
Helder Francisco. The very light, compact and flexible design allows
manufacturers to use the screwdriver system for a wide range of products. It
helps the mobile phone industry to increase productivity and quality in their
manufacturing, and has set a new standard.

The Peter Wallenberg Award goes to a team that has led the competence
development of service technicians and sales representatives within the
Industrial Technique business area: Leszek Irla, Caroline Stulgies, Patrik
Löfgren, Ataollah Maleki and Michael Schraft. This has enhanced technical
knowledge and customer relations, safeguarding the quality of work done and
increasing customer satisfaction.

“These two winning teams show that it pays off to focus on the customer,” said
Ronnie Leten, President and CEO of the Atlas Copco Group. “Putting the
customer first is what drives our innovation in product development and our
sales and service approach.”

The Peter Wallenberg Marketing and Sales Award recognizes the most innovative
successfully implemented method in the field of sales and marketing.

The John Munck Award is presented each year to a product developer or
designer, or a team, for outstanding contributions to the overall quality of
an Atlas Copco product.
