The mobile crusher and screen businesses ‘does not fit’, says Sweden-based firm
The Sweden-based equipment firm Atlas Copco has announced it will discontinue its Powercrusher business, which makes mobile crushers and screeners used for quarrying, civil engineering and recycling applications.
The company manufactured a range tracked of jaw, cone and impact crushers as well as screens, which it sold in the Middle East, with capacities beginning at 240 tonnes per hour and extending up to 600t/h.
Atlas Copco will stop the manufacturing in the plant in St. Valentin, Austria, during 2015, said Johan Halling, president of Atlas Copco’s Mining and Rock Excavation Technique business segment.
“We are discontinuing this business as it does not fit strategically for us,” said Halling. “We will ensure existing Powercrusher customers will continue to have their equipment serviced in the best way.”
