The Atlantic Steel Company and the industries that surrounded and supported it were a key part of the Atlanta skyline beginning in 1901.  Atlantic Steel was originally known as Atlanta Hoop Co. to make cotton bale tiles and barrel hoops. In 1951 the mighty mill was renamed Atlantic Steel and employed over 4,000 hardworking Atlantans.  For almost a century this location provided jobs for Atlanta residents and produced and deliver vital supplies throughout the South.
