Atlas Copco Rental North America wins over bid for renting oil-free air equipment and accessories to the Etileno XXI Project in Mexico.
In January of 2010, the Etileno XXI project was born as a result of the alliance between Braskem, a Brazilian company leading in the petrochemical industry and Group Idesa, one of the top Mexican companies in the petrochemical sector with 25% of the project shares. Together they have invested over 4.5 billion USD in the construction of a 500 acre complex in Coatzacoalcos, Veracruz, Mexico.
