Our History

Specialists in developing and producing soles for the footwear industry, Atlanta - Componentes para Calçado, Lda. was founded in 1995 with just two machines and five employees. Its production capacity was 500 to 700 pairs of monochrome soles per day.
From early on, however, Atlanta stood out for its boldness and originality, the design of its proprietary collections, its wide-ranging assortment of sole models and its technical complexity and quality.

Currently, Atlanta has its own facilities with a floor space of around 8000 m², with a production capacity of 20 000 pairs of monochrome, bicolour or tricolour soles per day in TPU, SBR, TR, prefabricated and EVA.
