- Jan 1, 2012That's exactly what Atlas did with Sears-Craftsman. If you go back in history
Sears helped a lot of company's and gave them exposure by switching names. Just
look at whirlpool sears sold there products and put the sears or kenmore name on
it. Sears went down Whirlpool is now a fortune 100 Company.

A few months ago I read the history on Atlas Press Com. From what I remembered
it was the other way around. Atlas sometime in the fifties purchased Clausing.
Later in time Atlas assumed the name Clausing. I don't remember the exact dates,
but I will try to look it up again and get back to you.
One story goes is after the Clausing purchase, Atlas retagged the clausing
lathes to reflect the Atlas name. An exec was visiting one of the Clausing
plants, when a potential customer came in asking for a Clausing lathe, the exec
told him that the Atlas lathes were the same as the Clausing ones. THe customer
stated that he wanted a Clausing not an Atlas and walked out. The lathes soon
after were retagged again to the Clausing name.
