No change to Atlas Scotland

The new management at Atlas Weyhausen, Germany has said that no changes are planned for the Atlas facility in Hamilton, Scotland. This is despite plans to trim the German company's workforce from 1499 to 914.

Earlier plans to close factories in Germany have been cancelled following the appointment of Steve Filipov as joint managing director. Filipov, whose father Fil is an executive vice president with Terex, has been seconded from Terex Lifting under a co-operation agreement with new owners Atlas Construction LLC. He has stressed that his plan is to make Atlas a leading loader crane manufacturer in Europe and to look for synergies between the two companies' dealer networks.
