Business Description

ATAS International, Inc. is a family-owned business that went from a siding and trim installer to an industry leading manufacturer of metal panels for the building envelope, with locations across the United States. Aluminum Trim And Shapes was founded in 1963 by Jacobus “Jack” P. Bus in his home’s basement in Rochester, NY where he and wife, Nel, and children resided.

The journey to become business owners started when Jack and Nel moved from the Netherlands in the 1950s. The hardworking duo saw a business opportunity while Jack was installing siding and trim in Rochester. Prior to the advent of portable forming equipment, he noticed contractors did not have the ability to bend their own products on-site. Jack then had the idea to do it for them, and provided bent trim and other products to the contractors for their projects. This business was well-received, and the company has seen tremendous growth over the years.

In 1972, Jack moved his company and its original equipment from their home’s basement into a 12,000- square-foot facility in Rochester. Despite having doubled their space, ATAS quickly outgrew their Rochester facility. Seeking a better location to allow for a larger distribution radius—the company moved to Allentown, PA in 1985. With sons Dick and Jim at his side in management roles, the Bus family saw opportunities in various markets by creating a large variety of innovative products. This, combined with their focus on quality, customer service and family, has made ATAS an industry leader.
