Company plans to consolidate its mining equipment operations.

Swedish manufacturer Atlas Copco plans to move the operations of one of its mining equipment production facilities in China, from Shenyang to Zhangjiakou, in order to increase efficiency. 

“Consolidating the operations will help us stay strong for the future," said Johan Halling, president for the mining and rock excavation technique business area. "We will support the affected employees in this difficult situation.”
