“When you boil it all down, ATM is about three things: People – our clients and our staff; Focused Niche Services – we know what we are great at; and Science – we develop practical engineering solutions for water environments.

People.  While we are targeting and hiring new talent, our staff averages 15 years’ tenure at ATM. Our reputation has been built over many, many years, and ironically 20 % of our staff have been with us for 15 years or more. All of this gives us consistency, proven experience, and most importantly – collaborative strength. Our clients have great vision and we are there to make this a reality in both domestic and international arenas and private and public domains.

ATM is focused. We strategically identified our targeted markets knowing where our strengths lie. Our objective is to continue to be the best in our industry in our selected service sectors. Each complement each other on many projects but also stand alone and are recognized regionally, nationally, and internationally.

ATM is engineering and science. It is critically important to us to know we are applying state-of-the-art science and engineering to solve our client’s problems. At the same time, we believe in practical study, applications, and solutions to always provide high value to our clients.”

“The heart of ATM, and key to our success, is our staff. We have assembled a group of like-minded, client-focused professionals who each bring a unique set of talents and experience to bolster our core services. We also share common interests outside the office and like to have fun doing what we love. We have fostered long-term relationships, with many staff having tenures of 10-15+ years – this allows us to work efficiently and in many cases interchangeably across our geographic range to provide our clients with the expertise necessary to help solve their engineering problems and realize their vision.”
