ATMA is a South American manufacturer of plastic products. The company was founded in 1948 and started operating factories in Argentina, Brazil, Venezuela, Peru and Uruguay. It mainly produces household goods, but several plastic model vehicles have been made in the past. Besides model trains, and plastic model kits originally issued by Merit and Monogram, the Brazilian branch, located in S„o Paulo, released detailed 1/24th scale plastic models of contemporary DKW cars in the 1960s under the name of ATMA Paulista. In Uruguay, ATMA manufactured a bus model as a promotional item for Banco TransatlŠntico del Uruguay in the 1950s. The original bus, built by NWF from Germany in 1954 and powered by a Magirus-Deutz engine, served as a mobile bank office in the suburbs of Montevideo until the bank closed down in 1963. The model is about 20 cm long and could be used as a coin bank.
