Our Focus

Our focus is you, the customer, and getting your product out there, cost-effectively and intact. We work to assure our success by offering superior customer service. This requires that every A-tech employee appreciate the needs of our customers and the importance of satisfying those needs. We, here at A-tech, never forget that you are our customer; you are our purpose and the source of our livelihood. The A-tech of today has grown on this simple service oriented premise and it is the basis for every action and decision we make.

Our History

A-tech Suburban Inc. was founded in 1989 through a combination of purchase and merger. We built upon the strengths of these companies to solidify sales and provide service to a greatly expanded geographic area.

A-tech has grown its business by building strong long-lasting relationships with customers who seek competitive pricing and a reliable storage facility. Our warehouses can promise safe keeping and special handling. Our goal is for our customers to have an excellent experience with A-tech. We are here to help you with whatever it is you may need.

Highlights:

  • 1989 Founded by Ken Heid and Tom Armstrong
  • 1994 A-tech built its headquarters in Palmer, Pennsylvania
  • 1999 Opened a second location in the mid-west
  • 2000 To present – Expand to accommodate additional product lines with manufacturers such as: Royal, EverDoor, Advanced Plastics, and Quality Edge
  • 2012 Scott Schmidt bought into the business when Tom Armstrong retired

Today, A-tech services accounts throughout the United States. We represent numerous quality products and continue to seek growth opportunities by responding to our existing customer/dealer needs and expanding our products line with select quality manufacturers into new industries.

Our Attention to Safety

A-tech is committed to maintaining a safe and compliant fleet. Our drivers are professionals who are required to maintain excellent driving records and drive in a socially responsible manner at all times.

Employees are encouraged to bring innovative ideas and equipment to our attention for implementation into our safety programs.

Our Future Plans

We look eagerly to the future of A-tech. We plan to open a third location in the western United States. This will provide us the opportunity to deliver to the entire continental US with our fleet of trucks.

We continually seek new opportunities to build long-term relationships with manufacturers who experience frequent and costly damage getting their products to market who could benefit from our Whole Service™ Solutions.

Mike Jones
A-tech Warehouse Employee

“When I was transitioning from Active Duty Army, I wasn’t looking for a job, I was looking for a career. I wanted to work for a company that had the same ideals and morals as I do; A-Tech is that company. The very best parts of my military service are part of A-Tech’s everyday business model. Teamwork and cooperation, striving to be the best, and common sense management are traits that A-tech shows daily. The best part of being at A-Tech is that we are a small company that cares about its employees and its customers. Nobody gets “lost in the shuffle” like at larger corporations. Everyone is treated as a valuable member of the A-Tech team, employees and customers, because everyone is important to us. I hope to be part of the A-Tech team for a long time to come.”

Jim Oliver
MO Warehouse Employee

“A-tech has been a part of my extended family for 3 generations now, and I can honestly say that it has had that ‘family atmosphere’ for as long as I’ve known it. The people in the company are always an extreme pleasure to work with, and bring their high quality character traits into the workplace each and every day. Our service levels have always set us apart from other companies. Be it out in the warehouse, on the road with our drivers and sales force, or in the office with customer service, there’s a peace of mind that our customers feel knowing that we are handling not only their products with care, but their business relationship with honor. It has been a privilege to grow with this company and witness the consistent maximum effort that gets put out by the A-tech team. I have no doubt that any company that chooses to use A-tech as their provider will quickly realize that they have made a wise and lasting decision.”
