(“Atlas” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: AEP)(OTC Markets: APEUF) today reports that it has completed the acquisition of Tandelle Specialty Inc. and Pacer Building Components Inc. (“Tandelle-Pacer”) of Ilderton, Ontario previously announced on August 14, 2018. With the acquisition of the Tandelle-Pacer operations, Atlas has added a large and well-established truss, engineered beam and wall and floor panel business, with a large, solid and growing customer base in the Greater Toronto area, entry into the Detroit, Buffalo and Rochester Market, and room to expand operations with ease. The acquisition of Tandelle-Pacer also adds a very experienced management team to Atlas’ Ontario operations.

Mr. Maritz continued, “Fundamentally, this transaction affirms the strength of both our acquisition and organic growth strategies with Atlas now approaching that $40m-$50m top-line revenue mark, and huge opportunity to grow organically in each of our group locations. Tandelle-Pacer’s demonstrated reputation for strong organic growth combines well with what we experience in the rest of the Atlas group, and the Tandelle-Pacer operation adds a large and well-established design and engineering powerhouse in the truss, engineered beam, wall and floor panel business with room to expand operations with ease.”
