Atlas Material Testing Technology (Chicago, Ill., USA), a manufacturer of weathering testing equipment and services, reported on Aug. 1 that it is relocating its corporate headquarters to Mount Prospect, Ill., USA, once renovations are completed. Atlas' approximately 130 employees working at the company's current headquarters in Chicago, IL, will transfer to the new location. For almost 60 years, Atlas has been based at a facility located in a once industrial, now mainly residential, area on the near north side of Chicago.
"Atlas is proud to have been an established part of Chicago's north side community of Ravenswood for close to six decades," says Atlas vice president of global operations Louis Bacigalupo. "Our new facility in Mount Prospect, however, provides us with contemporary offices, an efficient manufacturing layout and a location that is closer to major transportation and distribution channels, allowing us to better serve our increasingly global customer base."
