COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Atlantic Relocation Systems, the second largest agency group within the Atlas Van Lines U.S. network and one of the largest agents in the moving industry, announces the expansion of both its national footprint as well as its local service area in Colorado through a new office in Colorado Springs. The new location is in addition to Atlantic's existing Denver branch and dedicates more personnel and resources that specialize in diversified moving services to the region. Now open for business, this Colorado Springs location joins Atlas Van Lines' trusted network of nearly 500 Atlas agents throughout the U.S. and Canada.

"The addition of this branch brings new services to a second Colorado market that was lacking some of the premier moving options Atlantic offers," said Jon Schroeder, president and COO of Atlantic Relocation Systems.

After evaluating the moving needs for customers in the Colorado Springs area, particularly the large presence of military personnel, Atlantic Relocation Systems recognized opportunities to provide not only individual and corporate household moving services but also office and industrial relocation services and specialized transportation of high-value items. This new branch will have access to Atlantic's extensive central hauling fleet comprised of more than 120 over-the-road units and top-of-the-line materials handling equipment. Additionally, the Colorado Springs facility consists of 66,000 sq. ft. of office and warehouse space, adding to nearly one million square feet of existing owned and operated storage space in Atlantic's locations throughout the country.

"The acquisition of this Colorado Springs branch introduces top-tier service offerings with ease and proficiency to area residents, companies and military personnel," stated Steve Alger, vice chairman of Atlantic Relocation Systems.

Atlantic Relocation Systems operates a total of 12 branch locations that provide moving services and industry expertise to customers both nationally and internationally. With its long-standing business structure, each Atlantic location handles all business leads, service offerings and operating structure in its particular market, driving consistent individual branch profit year after year.

"Atlantic Relocation Systems has proven to be a valued Atlas agent since joining our network in 1997," said Steve Hermann, vice president of agency development at Atlas Van Lines. "We're happy to welcome Atlantic's new Colorado Springs branch to the Atlas agency network and are confident it will have a multitude of success in this new market."
