Economics of scale allows firms to increase its production with comparatively lower increase in total costs of production, so average total costs will decrease and total profits will increase. Large plant in some cases at less than maximum efficiency can have lover average total costs than a small plant at maximum efficiency, so profits per unit will be higher in a large plant according to economics of scale.
That's why I agree with the statement.
