Founded in 1963 by Raymond Parra and Jack Kasper, Atlas Desk has prided itself on being a family owned and operated business. The company first opened their doors on Canal Steet in New York City and relocated to Newark, New Jersey shortly after the onset of the historical Newark riots. In 1982, Atlas Desk moved it's operations to 50 Lafayette Street which is now home to The Prudential Center.  They would remain there for more than three decades before relocating to the University Heights Section in Newark's College District on Central Avenue.

At a time where Newark was not the optimal location for an up and coming small business, its success relied mainly on its founder’s values. "Ray and Jack" as many knew them, only having grammar school educations, instilled their principals of strong work ethic and loyalty to each other and those who lives they touched. With their integrity and charisma, they instantly began to establish  a good rapport with local businesses and built many relationships, most  of which still exist today. For this reason, after 50 years, Atlas Desk has maintained its resilience, and has weathered the toughest economic climates.

Today, Atlas Desk remains a family owned and operated business. Now run by Raymond’s children and loyal employees, its founder’s principals remain at the forefront of its everyday operations. As the company grows and moves forward, Atlas Desk continues to be a great resource for financially conscious companies, offering high-end business furniture solutions at affordable prices.

Atlas Desk accomplished the reconfiguration of our reception area, and we are extremely pleased with the transformation. The installers quickly assembled the new workstations, and left everything clean and ready for the new occupants to move in. We have had a long-standing relationship with Atlas Desk and value their expertise and efficiency.

MONMOUTH CARES

We found the experience to be a good one. The initial on-site assessment including your consultation and the floor plan was very helpful. The scheduling of the install took a bit of effort but your team was very flexible and it all worked out. The install day went off without a hitch and we feel the quality of the furniture was very good.

Our thanks to you, Richard and the whole team for everything. We plan on doing business with you in the future as well as recommending you to our business contacts"

ASSOCIATED MORTGAGE BANKERS

I have used Atlas Desk on three occasions to furnish my organizations. The reasons? First, they have real quality products available. Second, their products are reasonably priced. Third, their service is professional, courteous and efficient. From the owner, to the designer, to the installer, everyone treats you like you are their only customer. They even gave me an Atlas Desk Jacket to be a live advertisement.
