The Company history
The family company ATMOS was founded in the Czech Republic in 1935. In the beginning, production was focused on gasification propulsion units for cars and boats under the DOKOGEN brand, ie. the same principle as used in modern wood and coal gasification boilers.
Despite the German occupation and the communist dictatorship, the development of wood boilers, gasification units and compressors was maintained. In 1980, at the Pragotherm exhibition, it presented the first gasification boilers for wood and wood waste. To date, it has developed 90 types of hot water boilers for which it has 15 patents. One of the first boilers developed was the EKONOMIK boiler in 1968.
Three generations of Cankař are currently working, in a family business, to secure the European market with quality boilers that save the environment and energy. The company’s founder Jaroslav Cankář senior passed away in March 2006 at the age of a beautiful 94 years.
