PROFILE
 

In 1919, the owners changed the company name from G.T. Eames Company to Atlas Press Company to capitalize on their image as one of the country's leading builders of arbor presses.

In the 1920's, a period of strong growth for the company, the product line expanded with the addition of small machine tools, including Atlas Drill Presses and Lathes.

By 1950, the Atlas product line included drill presses and lathes for metalworking applications and lathes, milling machines, shapers, planer-jointers, belt and disc sanders, jig saws, and tilting arbor saws for woodworking applications.

In the early 1950's the company acquired the Clausing Lathe Company of Ottumwa, Iowa, enabling Atlas to offer metalworking lathes for the growing industrial and commercial markets.

In the mid 1950's the Atlas Press Company decided to concentrate on the industrial and commercial markets for metalworking products. The company sold the woodworking equipment line to a woodworking manufacturer.

Atlas Press Company began a successful mail order operation in 1976. Home hobby machinists were invited to purchase the Atlas Drill Press, the Atlas Band Saw, the Atlas Power Hack Saw, and the 6" Atlas Lathe as well as a catalogue full of accessories and non-proprietary tools.

And now, the Atlas name (through the Service Center in Goshen, Indiana) is back to furnish quality metalworking machine tools for metalworking enthusiasts in the mini tool environment- the Atlas Mini Lathe, the Atlas Mini Mill/Drill, and the Atlas Drill Press.
