Columbia, MO Location

Atkins Inc. Commercial Cleaning, Turf & Tree and Pest Management corporate headquarters and the service center for the northern half of central Missouri resides in the Propeller District at 1123 Wilkes Blvd suite 450.  Atkins also has warehouse space in the same block for all three of their service lines.

Tom and Linda Atkins moved their business in 1977 to the 1123 Wilkes Blvd address and set up shop.  Tom says, “The building was run down, windows were broken and the company occupied only a small part of the 50,000 square feet that, in its beginning, was the Hamilton-Brown Shoe Factory.” Built in 1906-07, the building was funded with Columbia’s first industrial revenue bond, the result of the community’s economic development effort to attract industry.  Placed on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) in 2002, 1123 Wilkes Blvd. is special because it is the only historic industrial building of its kind in Columbia. Tom and Scott began the restoration of the Wilkes Boulevard building in 2005.  The building had many signs and relics from the fallen wooden airplane propeller factory during World War II to the Ar-Cel Garment Factory. 

In addition to Atkins Building Services and Products, Inc., and Atkins Investments; RAIN, KBR, Courtney Tompson Photography, OnMedia, Bucket Media, PCN, EquipmentShare, Midwest Special Needs Trust, Hastings & Chivetta Architects fill the space that once sat mostly empty and worn.
