Atlas buys O scale Cornerstone Structures tooling from Walthers

Published: January 26, 2012
Atlas Model Railroad Co. Inc. has announced an agreement to purchase all O-scale structure tooling and existing O-scale structure inventory from Wm. K. Walthers Inc. These structures, previously sold under Walthers’ Cornerstone Structures brand, will be available from Atlas under the Atlas O banner soon.

“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.”

Atlas CEO Tom Haedrich said, “We are very excited to be expanding our O-scale offerings with such a quality line of structures.” The company release added “plans are underway to put Atlas’ own unique touch on these appealing structures.”

The deal with Walthers follows the recent announcement of the merger of Atlas O LLC with Atlas Model Railroad Co., making Atlas O a wholly owned subsidiary of Atlas Model Railroad Co.
