History

Five generations of professionalism and passion

2 powerful men, 80 successful years, 5 active generations. ATA Gears has a long and interesting history. It's not an anonymous 'cold as steel' company without a human face. In fact, it's just the opposite - full of feeling and warmth. It's a business that has grown big and world-wide, but it is still a family business which takes good and individual care of all its workers and customers.

Roots in the vehicle business

In 1937, a group of active and business-minded men bought a company called Autotarvike - a business that was focused on car equipment, such as gears. After a few years the business strategy was redefined completely to spiral bevel gears, and the company's name shortened to ATA.

In 1941, during the Second World War ATA relocated itself to the woods, 10 kilometres from the city centre. This was done mainly to make the company's existence safer, as ATA also produced parts for the Finnish army. This made it strategically vulnerable and very important to the whole nation.

Since then, the building has grown twice, and ATA has given the name Atala to the surrounding area, which has grown into a big and lively district.
