While our heritage dates back to the 1920’s, Atlas Dowel & Wood became a stand alone company setting up shop in the western suburbs of Cincinnati, Ohio in 1949. Through the years, Atlas has exemplified high quality product and exceptional service. In the early 80's Atlas switched from common lathe turning to centerless grinding. Centerless grinding is very common with metal, but semi-rare in the turning of wood. Centerless grinding produces very tight tolerances with a natural smoothness associated with high quality sanding.
Our wood dowels and wood products are American made, and we are committed to responsible forest management. In addition, Atlas Dowel has been FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified for a number of years. FSC-certified means that we produce wood components that were made from responsibly managed forests with a rigorous third party audit. Atlas has been decreasing our carbon footprint in everyway we can, utilizing our natural resources to the fullest potential while reducing waste.
Equipped with this rich tradition of quality, today Atlas Dowel is a leading manufacturer of FSC certified wood dowel rods and component parts. Our customers know first hand that Atlas Dowel is committed to the highest quality and service in the industry.
