Some ATLAS Excavator Service Manuals & Spec PDF are above the page.
The German company Atlas GmbH (from 2010 to 2016 – Atlas Maschinen GmbH) is a world-famous manufacturer of construction equipment. The head office is located in the city of Ganderkesee.
The main products of the company are heavy and medium wheeled and tracked excavators. In addition to excavators, the company manufactures tower cranes, crawler and wheel loaders of various capacities.
In 2019, Atlas will celebrate its anniversary – the centenary of its foundation. On the official website of the company included a counter showing how much time is left until the anniversary date.
In 1919, Hinrich Weyhausen, in the small town of Delmenhorst in Lower Saxony, Germany, founded the company Hinrich Weyhausen KG, for the production of agricultural machinery and lifting equipment for agriculture.
The registered trademark “Atlas” first appeared in 1936. The first hydraulic excavator was made in the middle of the last century. The company Hinrich Weyhausen KG constantly improved its offspring, and already in the sixties, it took a leading position in the international market of excavators.
In 1962, more than a thousand workers worked in all of its factories.
When the company’s founder, Hinrich Weyhausen, passed away, his son Gunter took over the leadership. The name was later changed to Atlas Weyhausen GmbH.
Faced with financial difficulties at the end of the last century, the owners sold their business to EDER Handel und Beteiligungen GmbH, which, in turn, resold it to the American manufacturer of building machinery and machines Terex from Westport.
The company was renamed Atlas Terex GmbH. The new management didn’t bring anything good, the organization suffered significant losses, and in March 2010 investor Philip Filippov bought the company for one euro. Filippov called the new organization Atlas Maschinen GmbH.
After half a year, Filippov also purchased the Kaelble trademark from Terex. After half a decade, Atlas Maschinen GmbH changed its name to Atlas GmbH, and since then all products of the company are manufactured under this trademark.
