Carl Esprey, Chief Executive Officer of Atlas, said: "We are delighted to confirm our change of name to Atlas African Industries Limited. This reflects our widening strategy as we continue to develop our industrial division utilising our operational experience in Africa, in particular advancing the Chancho Project in Ethiopia, a new state-of-the-art glass bottle manufacturing facility 45km north of the capital, Addis Ababa, where ground clearing and geotechnical drilling recently commenced. With significant market demand for quality glass bottles in Ethiopia identified, proven in-country operational experience and a defined growth strategy, I truly believe this is an extremely exciting time of development for Atlas."
