The History of Atkins Kroll, Inc.
In 1906, G.H. (David) Atkins and Clifton Kroll established Atkins, Kroll and Co., Ltd in San Francisco, California; and began trading operations between the United States and Australia. In 1914, Atkins Kroll (Guam) Ltd. was established on Guam to coordinate the growing copra trade in the Pacific Islands. Other subsidiary companies were subsequently established in the Philippines, Saipan, and Singapore.
Atkins Kroll's operations in the pacific were interrupted by WWII. After the war, company officials returned to Guam and discovered that loyal Guamanian employees had secretly preserved the company records. This enabled the company to pick up where it left off. In fact, Atkins Kroll played a key role in rebuilding and developing the economies of the islands after the war.
In 1974, Atkins, Kroll Co., Ltd and its subsidiaries in the Pacific were acquired by the Inchcape Group. Inchcape Plc is an international Motors Distributor with headquarters in London.
A few years later, in 1981, it became apparent that the hub of Atkins Kroll's business was in the Pacific, mainly on Guam. The San Francisco office was closed and trading operations were concentrated in the Guam-Micronesia region.
Today, Atkins Kroll, Inc. is the leading distributor of vehicles in this part of the world. AK has set up a network of outlets throughout Guam, the Northern Marianas, and Micronesia, enabling it to provide a full range of motoring services to the region
