Atlas is a popular manufacturer of excavators (including tracked, wheeled, tunnel, and crawler), many different types of cranes, and both heavy and industrial wheel loaders. Their products are primarily used in the construction, mining, and military applications.
Atlas was founded in 1919 by a German gentleman named Hinrich Weyhausen. He realized that the equipment and features his agricultural customers needed was simply not available, so he began to design and manufacture his own equipment to sell a few years later. Atlas began manufacturing cranes in 1945, followed by excavators in the 1950s. However, Atlas did not become a part of the company name until 1986.
They have long had strong commitment to innovation and quality, with a focus on providing customers with the machines they need to get their work done efficiently. Their machines are noted for reliability and performance.
