Your Mission, Our Focus
Founded in 2004, ATSG was formed and developed to manage international contracts and programs that require skilled employees to provide specific support services to Federal clients. To this end, the company has been very successful. The positive results came because the company has never wavered from its practice of integrity in all situations and its hiring practices of seeking not only skilled personnel but seeking people of character.
ATSG was founded on the belief and passion of serving our country. That belief is ingrained in who we are and is evident in our social impact programs that are focused on supporting our nation’s veterans and our local communities. Through our partners, funding, volunteers, and campaigns, we are addressing the barriers faced by transitioning veterans and the wellness of families in need within our community.
Our ethos begins with professionalism, integrity, and honesty. Our success is the result of our commitment to our customers and doing our best. We thrive by tackling hard problems, demonstrating innovative thought, and striving to the push what’s possible every day. We run our business with professionalism, integrity and honesty. Our success is the result of our commitment to our core values. These important principles, and our adherence to them, guide every aspect of our business. ATSG provides cost effective, quality solutions directly to Federal Agencies and large Prime Contractors who have mandatory subcontractor requirements for credentialed companies. We are able to execute program and geographic requirements thanks to our experience supporting clients with critical world-wide missions. Our global past performance is unique for a small business and our success is a testament to our people.
Long-term partnerships are sustained on a foundation of trust. We take pride in delivering the most comprehensive and appropriate solutions, anticipating our clients’ needs, irrespective of the difficulty and effort involved. ATSG supports many programs aimed at assisting military veterans returning from duty in war zones and those preparing to separate from active duty. We’re very familiar with the high caliber of these young men and women who represent some of America’s best and brightest. We are convinced that veterans represent a ready-made pool of exemplary candidates who are perfectly matched for the detailed, highly-disciplined projects at federal agencies. Members of our Armed Forces embody the holistic qualities of the most sought-after candidates. Highly trained and motivated, they are mission-oriented by nature, diligent, serious and honorable. Their infused respect for authority and disciplined service mentality makes them especially well qualified for detailed work in a high-compliance, security-sensitive environment.
ATSG owes its success to the collective skills and experience of its management team and program management staff working together as a team. Our employees are our most valuable asset.
