A Proven Process for High-Quality Metal Fabrication
AT&F is committed to being an EOS business, which focuses on vision, people, data, issues, process and traction. In fact, the data-driven management model is a cornerstone of how we do business. The AT&F Proven Process illustrates how this translates into our daily work and interactions with customers.
When John J. Ripich founded AT&F in 1940, he instilled six core values that have carried us through more than 80 years of innovation and investment. We live by these values and seek customers, vendors and suppliers that share the same principles.
The AT&F Core Values
There’s no room for slacking in an industry where every micrometer matters and safety is paramount. We take on each day with gusto and grit.
Do what we say we will do
Our promise to customers is that there are no surprises. What we say is what we mean, and we do what it takes to get it done.
Take care of each other
Banding together makes for a stronger team, which makes for a better environment, and ultimately, better results for our customers. We care about each other as individuals as well as a company, and we make sure each person is treated with respect, dignity and kindness.
Boasting is not in our blood. We lead by example and by the quality we produce, without unnecessary fluff and pomp.
If you only do what you’ve always done, you’ll only be where you’ve always been. We take pride in investing in new technologies, processes, equipment, people and innovations to remain the best we can be in a changing world.
Run to it
Challenges do not deter us; we welcome them. We believe if there is a way something can be done, we’ll find it, and we’ll do it with enthusiasm.
Our Commitment to Sustainability
We believe the planet is a precious resource in need of protecting, and therefore, we strive to support sustainable, green initiatives. We have committed to going paperless by 2025 and we operate under the mindset of reduce, reuse, recycle to maximize the material we use and minimize scrap and waste.
AT&F supports companies working in the green and renewable energy sector, creating components for use in wind, solar and hydroelectric applications. By partnering with such important initiatives, we seek ways to create a better future for our customers, for ourselves, and for our fellow human beings.
The principles that guide AT&F’s success are more than just a mission; they’re a philosophy that drives all that we do.
