First publishedon www.AggBusiness.com
Atlas Copco is to discontinue its Powercrusher business which manufactures and sells mobile crushers and screeners for quarrying, civil engineering and recycling.
The Swedish firm will stop manufacturing in its plant in St. Valentin, Austria, during 2015. However, it will arrange for customers to continue getting aftermarket service support for their existing Powercrusher equipment fleet.
“We are discontinuing this business as it does not fit strategically for us,” said Johan Halling, president of Atlas Copco’s Mining and Rock Excavation Technique business area. “We will ensure existing Powercrusher customers will continue to have their equipment serviced in the best way."
The Powercrusher business has about 70 employees and had revenues in 2014 of about €28 million.
