ATLAS BUYS O SCALE CORNERSTONE STRUCTURE TOOLING FROM WALTHERS
Hillside, N.J., 1/26/2012 - Atlas Model Railroad Co., Inc. has agreed to purchase all O scale structure tooling, as well as existing O scale structure inventory, from Wm. K. Walthers, Inc. In the near future, these structures will be available from Atlas under the Atlas O product brand.
“We are sure that modelers will be very pleased to see these great buildings back in production as part of the Atlas O family of products,” said Phil Walthers, CEO of Wm. K. Walthers, Inc.
The structures are very well-designed and their subject matter appeals to a wide range of O scale modelers. The variety of commercial and industrial structures will enhance existing layouts quickly and easily. “We are very excited to be expanding our O scale offerings with such a quality line of structures,” said Tom Haedrich, Atlas CEO. “We think modelers will find new inspiration for their layouts.” Plans are underway to put Atlas’ own unique touch on these appealing structures.
This buying agreement comes on the heels of the announcement that Atlas O, LLC is now merged with Atlas Model Railroad Co., Inc.; Atlas O is now a wholly owned subsidiary of Atlas Model Railroad Co. Inc.
Atlas Model Railroad Co., Inc. is a family-owned business founded in 1924 as the Atlas Tool Company. Over the span of 88 years, and continuing today, Atlas has built its offerings to include items for almost every aspect of O, HO and N scale model railroading.
