About Atom

Executive Summary

ATOM Precision of America, Inc. began as an Indiana-based subsidiary of Saito Seisakusho Co. Ltd. of Japan. Founded in 1989, ATOM has played a leading role in distributing Saito’s micro drills with diameters ranging from as small as 0.02mm and up to 3mm for over 25 years for use in a variety of industries, including healthcare, aerospace, automotive, electronics and mold manufacturing. Based on continuous demand for their products, ATOM has diversified their product line to offer multiple flute lengths and high-performance coatings as well as standard non-coated drills. After relocating to a new distribution center in Illinois, the company continues to experience significant growth fueled by a desire to bring ATOM products to the world.

Origins of ATOM. The company name, ATOM, has become a brand that is intended to represent a series of micro drills. The word “atom” in English is defined as “a particle of the smallest structural unit constituting the basic substance”. Given the company’s pursuit of producing the world’s smallest diameter drilling tools, the concept of the atom strongly ties to the mission of the company and the ATOM trademark is intended to clearly communicate that mission to the customer.

Company Credo. “value for all through creativity” [使う身になって造れ]

ATOM has operated in pursuit of this core philosophy as an extension of the parent company since its establishment in 1934. This simple statement is fundamental to the company, and has been installed as part of the company’s corporate culture. It is intended to guide the company’s interactions with not only customers and their experience in mind, but also with the company’s employees, their families, suppliers, distributors, and the community at large. We remain committed to provide not only the best products in the market, but to also build valuable and cooperative relationships with all who come in contact with the company.
