The history of Atlas Paving can be traced to
1954 when Peter Panizza cleared 40ha of bush
in Malaga and established the headquarters of
Manx Bricks, which produced lime silica bricks
In 1991, the company -- which had since
renamed itself the Atlas Group -- began
production of compressed concrete pavers
with reconstituted limestone pavers to
follow in 2004.
The Atlas Group of today is a diverse company
with an emphasis on the manufacture of bricks
and paving, waste management (in conjunction
with the City of Stirling) and farming.
The company remains a family-owned business
with a strong commitment to safety and local
communities, employing more than 130 people.

Blessed with natural beauty, hardiness and low
maintenance requirements, travertine has proven
its worth as a popular building material over the
ages, with Rome's famous Colosseum a testament to the
timeless allure of the rock.
But with a natural formation process estimated by
geologists to be around the 50 million-year mark and a
certain unpredictability in the finished product, travertine
is not without its problems.
By combining the ingenuity of Mother Nature with the
scientific knowledge of man, Atlas Paving has uncovered
a solution to put travertine within the reach of all.
Atlas Travertine works by filling moulds of the best
quality natural travertine with reconstituted limestone to
create pavers with the appearance of travertine, yet with
the consistency of a manufactured product.
Available in two di erent colours and a variety of
sizes that allow for striking patterns, Atlas Travertine is a
far more a ordable alternative to its naturally-occurring
brethren and has been embraced by builders and
developers after an upmarket and sophisticated look for
Valued as a building material since the Middle Ages, travertine
is enjoying a resurgence in popularity thanks to some innovative
thinking from Atlas Paving.
