A Little Bit More About Atlas…

About Us

Atlas has been serving the construction industry since 1972. We are a full-service solution provider. Working on projects from "cradle to grave", we have the expertise to facilitate providing the materials, installation, and coordination to see the successful completion of your project. We are adept at providing turnkey solutions that meet the most exacting standards. We utilize a team concept, assigning a single point of contact to work with you throughout the process.


Atlas was formed in 1972. From a humble beginning in a small home off the Outer Loop in Louisville, KY, the Atlas Companies have expanded to multiple locations including offices in Lexington, KY and Indianapolis, IN. Our main headquarters location is at 5101 Commerce Crossing Drive in Louisville, KY. This growth was fostered by founder JC Keith’s determination to build a company based on the principles of integrity, dependability, proactivity, excellence, and tenacity.


Atlas has built a reputation for providing the highest quality materials to the commercial construction industry. From our base business of supplying hollow metal doors and frames, Atlas has expanded to include a broad spectrum of products, all backed by professional, courteous service. This has allowed Atlas to “set the standard” that other distributors in the market are compared to.


Atlas is an enduring presence that will remain strong for years to come. We maintain historical records of our projects, so we can quickly find matching material to assist in expansions and remodels throughout the life of the structure. When other distributors come and go, we continue to provide consistent quality and dependable service that you can rely on.
