About ATAS

ATAS starts its activity in 1965 with the manufacture of such products as hand-washing paste, neutral car shampoo, black for tires as well as cooling and de-waxing agents. 

In the ‘70s, ATAS starts the production of aerosols, such as PENETRUS, DEG, FAVORAC, and the one that later on becomes its trump card: PLAK, dashboard and car interior treatment enjoying incredible success in many European countries. 

In the ‘80s, ATAS introduces many novelties in the cleansing field and this way new touchless products are launched. ATAS is the second company in Italy that distributes products such as ECOBRIL, DECO, DIMER, more recently DEMICAR, and then NAMAR, RIAL 2000, etc. – just to mention the most important ones.

The ‘90s mark the beginning of exportation, and that is when ATAS quality starts getting positive opinions and appreciations in many different countries, both in the car care and in carwash field. A very important step for ATAS is the building of a new production facility to satisfy the increasing demand for products such as aerosols.

That interest can be reflected by 8 million of spray bottles produced in 2010. ATAS always seriously invests in research to get environmentally friendly products. In the past years, to respect the rules in force, ATAS removed Freon from the formula of its products, a gas dangerous for the ozone layer due to chlorofluorocarbons included in it; later – in the raw material field – ATAS abandoned phenolic-based surfactants. ATAS is certified UNI EN ISO 9001:2008 and 14001:2004.  The company has a widespread sales network in the entire Italy, and is present in 25 countries in particular on the markets of Poland, Greece, Ukraine, Portugal, Germany, Netherlands thanks to the cooperation with more than 100 distributors. ATAS can provide its customers with over 250 products, in different versions, for a total quantity of 1400/1800 tons per year.
