Atlas Roofing Corporation is a manufacturer of residential and commercial roofing products. Atlas is a privately held company with corporate headquarters located in Atlanta, Georgia. The company had a single asphalt shingle manufacturing facility in the early 1980s when it was first established. With four additional roofing plants in the mid-90s, the shingle manufacturer continues to grow to address the demands of the asphalt shingle industry.
