Our new building has been completely remodeled, including the addition of a state-of-the-art data center."

The company’s original location at 24501 Ecorse Road remains the corporate main office and the operations hub of the company, housing customer service, dispatch/logistics, transportation, human resources and the sales and marketing departments.

"Atlas Oil's expansion to a second location in the City of Taylor helps meet the needs of this impressive company, demonstrates its further commitment to Taylor and expands our community's workforce," said Mayor of Taylor Jeffrey Lamarand. "As the proud home to Atlas' world headquarters, we have watched closely as Atlas has grown throughout the Midwest and into 21 states, making it a national leader in petroleum products and a model for other firms to follow.
