Atlas® Roofing rebrands

Atlas Roofing Corp., Atlanta, has unveiled its new brand identity in conjunction with the company’s 40th anniversary. The rebrand includes a new logo; corporate tagline; and mission, vision and value statements. The purpose of rebranding is to connect the four divisions of the company as it works to meet customers’ needs through the accessibility of its people and products.

Atlas Roofing’s new logo was designed to support the company’s expanded mission. The logo builds on the previous logo’s globe image and company name with an updated font to signal ongoing advancement. The globe now wraps around the company name as a nod to its history and original 1982 visual mark.

To coincide with the rebrand, Atlas Roofing also launched a new corporate website, The website features comprehensive overviews of the company’s four divisions, products and key initiatives, leadership in the industry and additional company information, including career opportunities.

“During the past four decades, Atlas Roofing has grown from a single manufacturing facility in 1982 to 36 facilities in North America with worldwide product distribution. This exceptional growth is due to the hard work and dedication of our employees and the ongoing support of our customers,” says Ken Farrish, president of Atlas Roofing. “As we celebrate 40 years of Atlas Roofing, we are excited about the opportunities that are ahead.”

Throughout the year, Atlas Roofing’s new brand identity will be seen across all its internal and customer touchpoints, including the website, social media channels, products, packaging and marketing materials. Additionally, Atlas Roofing will host anniversary celebrations at all its manufacturing facilities in the coming months.
