ATLAS TACK

Atlas Tack of Fairhaven, MA was at one time the world leader of tack and nail manufacturing. It abruptly closed in 1986 after a long struggle with international competitors. Ironically, most of the machinery was crated up and sold to a company in Japan. A short documentary of the controversial abandoned tack factory; that held the town of Fairhaven on the brink of an environmental disaster for years, was produced in 1987 by the award winning documentary producer, MLBaron. The video was instrumental in the EPA's eventual clean up of the site and remediation of the surrounding wetlands.
