On Monday, August 13th we had the honor of being one of the sponsors of a fantastic event. Tee It Up for the Troops is an annual golf tournament that raises money for veterans. Since 2005 this organization has hosted more than 415 fundraising events in over 40 states. With generous support of sponsors and volunteers these events have raised over $9,000,000 for various veteran service organizations. At this event veterans from all wars, beginning with WWII, were honored, but also the Korean War, Vietnam, Desert Storm, Desert Shield, Afghanistan, and other non-combat vets. A very moving tribute also occurred for two fallen soldiers from Wisconsin. Thank you Tee It Up for the Troops for providing us with the opportunity to participate in aiding this great cause.

Atlas is excited about finding new ways to be green. Our vision is: Be responsive. Be innovative. Be an organization that matters to customers, employees and our community. We believe that mattering to our community includes being environmentally friendly. With most powder coating operations, there is overspray waste that often times ends up in landfills. According to surpluscoatings.com, it is estimated that there is enough waste powder paint sent to the landfill each year in the United States to bury New York City in seven feet of powder. That is just below the average annual snowfall of the whole state of Michigan. Atlas has taken the initiative to start recycling powder waste through Surplus Coatings in July 2016 and has kept a total of 28,990 pounds of powder waste out of the local landfills! Surplus Coatings re-manufactures, blends or mixes the powder waste so it can be used in a variety of new products.
