A brief history … Born in 1937 in St. Louis
In 1937, Atlas Plumbing Supply was founded by two brothers, Ben and Fred Suffian, with $5000.00 of borrowed money.
In 1959, Fred’s son Mike joined the company.
In 1960, Atlas procured the Ruud Water Heater line.
In 1962, Fred’s son Bob joined his father and brother.
In 1965, the company became an American Standard wholesaler.
In 1979, Atlas moved one block east into our present 95,000 square foot facility.
Our company name was changed to Atlas Supply Company to reflect our deep and diverse inventory. Mike’s son Joel, Mike’s daughter Leigh, and Bob’s son Brent now lead the company. Our showroom/design studio Immerse opened in Brentwood in 2012.
Like us, many of our customers represent their company’s 2nd or 3rd generation. We feel so fortunate to have such a strong and loyal customer base, and we regard it with great respect. We also place our employees in a very special category. Many have been with us for decades. The combination of their knowledge and dedication exemplifies how Atlas has prospered through the test of time.
Atlas Supply Company has always stood for truth, honesty, and respect. We embrace our roots, honor our past, and work hard to ensure future success for our customers, our employees and our company.
