Our Wood Products History

Our History

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. In the early 80's Atlas switched from lathe turning to centerless grinding which is very common with metal, but semi-rare in the turning of wood. Centerless grinding, a manufacturing process used for spindles and pegs, produces very tight tolerances with a natural smoothness associated with high quality sanding. 

Our wood dowel products are made right here in America and we are committed to responsible forest management. 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 wood dowel rods, banner and print media dowels and component parts. Our customers know first hand that Atlas Dowel is committed to the highest quality and service in the industry.
