Atari Benelux shuts down

Atari UK's marketing manager, Darryl Still, recently commented on the report that Atari Benelux (based in the Netherlands) had been closed down

Atariís decision to concentrate on the Jaguar means that C-Lab is now the only company distributing new Falcons

Closure would leave Atari UK as the company's only administrative presence in Europe.

Explaining that the Benelux office had been a warehousing operation for the past few years, with Atari UK handling administrative details, Mr Still said that the Benelux operation will continue. The building will be contracted out rather than owned, but many of the core Benelux staff will remain in their current positions, This move follows the final distribution of all STs and Falcons from the Benelux office.

The move is consistent with Atari's recent cutback following the decision to concentrate all their resources on the Jaguar (see News, STF 72 for more details).
