Founded in 1909 by brothers James T. and Seth B. Atwood, the Atwood Vacuum Machine Company initially manufactured the then new technology of centralized vacuum cleaners for industrial and commercial applications. Before long the company became involved in body hardware for the automotive industry in Detroit, and by the 1930s Atwood was producing tongue jacks. In 1965 Atwood acquired Bowen Water Heater Company and in early 1986 Atwood acquired the gas range and oven producing Wedgewood Industries. Hydro Flame was acquired in 1993, and in 1994 Atwood became ISO 9001 certified and also entered the Seating Hardware business with its acquisition of Better Products.
In 1996 Excel Industries, an automotive supplier of window and window regulator systems, acquired Atwood Mobile Products. In 1999, Excel was acquired by Dura Corporation (NASDAQ DRRA), the worlds largest independent designer and manufacturer of driver control systems. Dura is a leading supplier of seating control systems, engineered assemblies, structural door modules, and integrated glass systems for the global automotive industry.
In 2003, Atwood Mobile Products acquired the Creation Group Americas premier designer and manufacturer of windows, doors, and specialty products for a wide range of vehicular and housing applications.
