MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

Atlas is proud to be one of the top bicycle producing companies in the world with an annual capacity of manufacturing nearly three million bicycles.

My Grandfather, Late Rai Bahadur Shri Jankidas Kapur was the founder of the company, which was established way back in 1950. My father, Late Shri B.D. Kapur, who was at the helm of affairs as President, was the driving force to lead the company for more than 50 years and incidentally I worked with him closely throughout. On 1st September 2003, Atlas Cycles restructured the management of Sonepat unit with the reins of management resting upon myself as President, my brother, Rajiv Kapur as Joint President and my son, Angad Kapur as Vice President. And together we would endeavour to take 'Atlas' to greater heights where we would surge ahead towards… new horizons, new goals, new innovations, new technology and new control.

The job of the management has always been to see the company not as it is, but as it can grow to be. We believe in our ability to guide the forces of change and forge ahead to emerge as leaders in the areas of our operations.

Our goals for the year will be to achieve significant further turnover growth, with substantial improvements in profits through consistently providing high-quality product bicycles and services, and a total commitment to better serve our customers, while at the same time maintaining the highest ethical standards and values.

I am confident that our company restructuring initiatives, our quality improvement goals, our quest for better corporate performance and greater customer satisfaction would very soon begin to show even better results.
