Company History

The family company ATMOS was founded in Bohemia in 1935. In the beginning the production was aimed at LCV-generators for autos and ships under the trade mark of DOKOGEN. The same working principle is used in modern boilers for wood and coal.

In 1942, ATMOS started development and manufacturing of the ATMOS compressors, exported to all the world until the nationalization in 1951.

Despite German occupation and the following communist dictatorship, the company has maintained the development of boilers for wood, LCV units, and compressors.

In 1980, the first boiler for wood and waste wood was presented at the Pragoterm fair. Until today, ATMOS has developed over 70 types of boilers under 13 patents. One of the first boilers was the EKONOMIK in 1968.
