Our Story

Since our beginnings in 1963, Atscott Manufacturing has been a family business. Following sale, relocation and closure of the Scott-Atwater Outboard Motor Company, Atscott was organized as a contract manufacturer by a small group of enterprising individuals with a diverse skill set acquired over decades of marine equipment manufacturing.

Led by Manley Norris, operations began in what was previously the Pine City Creamery building. Atscott grew throughout the 1960s and 1970s, continuing progress in the 1980s and beyond under the leadership of John Norris. Expansion in 1988 to the current location, and additional square footage added in 1997 and 2020, were completed to meet the needs of our customers.

Today, Atscott remains in family ownership and is a family-orientated organization. Many of our team members are 2nd and 3rd generation employees, and the Norris Family remains active in the organization.
