Atlas Copco announced that it will discontinue its Powercrusher business, which manufactures and sells mobile crushers and screeners.

“We are discontinuing this business as it does not fit strategically for us,” says Johan Halling, president of Atlas Copco’s Mining and Rock Excavation Technique business area, in a corporate press release. “We will ensure existing Powercrusher customers will continue to have their equipment serviced in the best way.”

While it will shutter the manufacturing in the plant in St. Valentin, Austria, this year, Atlas Copco will arrange for customers to get aftermarket service support for the existing fleet.

Approximately 70 employees are in the Powercrusher business unit.
