In 1952, Atlantis began to export glass articles to the United States and England.

The factory was transformed in 1972 in order to produce crystal: the full-leaded and manually produced Atlantis Crystal was introduced to the American market. The business was divided into two separate sections : the crystals (made in Alcobaca), and the glass, (made in Marinha Grande).

The introduction of Atlantis Crystal to the US market was a huge success due to the exceptional price/quality relation and the variation of the modern and original design. This enabled Atlantis to triple its crystal production capacity, reaching a daily production of a massive 7.5 tons in 1974. This opened doors to new markets for Atlantis.

Atlantis launched a new brand of automatic crystals of inferior quality in 1996 – Royal Crystal by Atlantis (which is now renamed as By Atlantis series). These very special range of crystals are produced overseas by means of outsourcing, this means it is available at more affordable prices and therefore more attractive to the export markets. Also, Atlantis is often contracted to do outsourcing for leading market competitors such as Waterford Crystal, Baccarat and Saint Louis.

Atlantis merged with Vista Alegre in May 2011 and created a holding (VAA – vista Alegre Atlantis S.G.P.S., S.A).
