Founded as the Atlas Tool Company by Stephan Schaffan, Sr. 1924, incorporated in 1949. What began as a sideline business in the 1930s with Stephan Schaffan, Jr. manufacturing model railroad track components soon became a full-time occupation for the company. A factory was constructed in 1947 to serve the growing model railroad market.

Name change occurred in the early 1990s. [1]
