Our Team

From the day we opened our doors in 2002, ATG has created an atmosphere of teamwork and loyalty by emphasizing a flat management structure that remains visible today. As you walk through our office you will find our owners, John Thompson and Harold Gross in the trenches, active on the sales floor amongst all our employees. This team spirit is prevalent in every aspect of our day to day operations. ATG empowers our employees to use their own personal approach to strive to be their best every day. It is this dynamic that separates ATG from our competitors.
