OCTOBER 18, 2018 - ATLAS Machine and Supply Announces Move of Field Machining Team to Breckinridge County

Breckinridge United is thrilled to announce that ATLAS Machine and Supply will be moving fifteen of their employees to a new facility in Breckinridge County! ATLAS President Richie Gimmel and Press Division General Manager Ron O’Donoghue visited Breckinridge United’s Board of Directors meeting on October 18, 2018 to confirm their decision and continue the discussion on how we can best collaborate. Breckinridge United has had such a productive relationship with ATLAS over the past few months, as we worked with them to find a new home for their field machining team. ATLAS has been a steadfast supporter of our county and our Area Technology Center, and we are so happy to now have them as members of our business community. Breck United looks forward to our continued relationship with ATLAS and to supporting their efforts in whatever ways possible. Thank you again to Mr. Gimmel and Mr. O'Donoghue for their support for our community.
We’d also like to take a moment to thank our Breck County guys who work at ATLAS for representing our community so well and for helping us with this project. Their work ethic and skills strengthened the case for ATLAS to put their second home here. Our workforce and our ATC are among our best assets and we encourage everyone  to recognize and thank those in manufacturing for their hard work!
