Aluminum Techniques’ Company History
After operating a successful screen and patio business in Florida for 30 years, Aluminum Techniques Inc.(A.T.I.) was opened in Houston in 1982.
The Houston market was huge and virtually untapped. The company had an ambitious budget and marketed to educate the public on the benefits and desirability of its products.
After experiencing some success, the result of the media blitz was found to be disappointing compared with the Florida Market.
One of the employees, who had started with the firm as an installer believed the future company would be successful if certain steps would be taken to trim down while pushing for better quality control, and higher production.
An aggressive, yet more prudent marketing plan was developed and implemented and a partnership was established with an investor with many years experience in the building industry. This resulted in the successful operation it is to today.
The one-time screen room installer had advanced to become President of the most respected enclosure company in Houston. His ambition and his optimistic belief in the future of the company will lead to further expansion in the years to come.
The company’s experience in the design and fabrication of various types of enclosures and aluminum structures brought several national and international companies to choose A.T.I. as their distributor for products such as glass pool rooms with retractable roof panels and the Corradi product line.
A.T.I. is very positive about future prospects and is excited to work with some of the major construction companies in the Houston area.
