Aero Tec Laboratories Inc (ATL)
Aero Tec Laboratories was founded in 1970 as a design and testing facility for `flexible composite` materials. Shortly thereafter, the firm broadened its scope to include the actual fabrication of end products from its own outstanding fiber/elastomer composites. From ambitious beginnings in engineered inflatables and crashworthy fuel cell bladders, ATL has further spread its technologies into compensators, accumulators, potable water vessels, self-healing ballistic tanks, space containerization, bulk storage bladders and scores of similar endeavors. The common thread among ATL`s products is the seeming dichotomy of remarkable toughness and durability coupled with extreme light weight, high flexibility and compactness. ATL-USA and ATL-UK have both been blessed with outstanding records of engineering achievement and unwavering loyalty from valued customers around the World.

Over its generation of growth, ATL USA has assembled an enviable legion of agents and distributors, plus a sister company in England, ATL UK, and a range of over 100 flex-composite materials.
Today, ATL enjoys sales of both 'catalog' and 'custom' devices to prestigious clients in the world's top 40 industrialized nations. ATL is also an AS9100D and ISO 9001:2015 certified company, the highest quality standard attainable.
Both firms are proud of their people, their products and their perseverance through good times and bad. Happily, neither company has suffered a “losing year” in all of their combined 65 years in business!
To convey their gratefulness for ATL’s unbroken success, management and labor have combined both cash and kindness to help support as many local and national charities as feasible.
ATL - An Earth Friendly Firm
ATL is not a 'suddenly-trendy' company. The fact is, we have been attuned to health, safety, conservation and environmental issues for 40 years.
First came the safety and good health of ATL's customers whom we've long protected by preventing countless fires, explosions, burns and fatalities through ATL's revolutionary safety fuel cell bladder tanks.
At the same time, ATL has refined its own research and manufacturing processes to drastically reduce reliance upon chemicals and solvents, otherwise common to the rubber and plastics industry. Our company has successfully diminished waste and scrap too, by re-positioning and re-cycling spent raw materials, such as foam, fabrics and elastomers.
ATL is also proud of its safe and healthy workplace, which is routinely inspected and approved by both Federal and State OSHA offices. Our workspaces are outfitted with high efficiency lighting, central skylights, localized heating, R40 insulation, fresh air circulation and full fire suppression systems. Employees enjoy safe off-street parking in a suburban setting, yet close to major arteries for minimizing travel-time and fuel consumption. Even the ATL grounds are heavily planted with oxygen-emitting trees, shrubs, and 'modest but attractive' flower beds!
ATL's offices and technical labs have adopted programs to recycle newsprint, glass, metal, plastics and even outdated documents, which are reused as scrap-paper!
Most interesting is ATL's gradual, but brave, technological metamorphosis from petroleum-based polymers to those derived from renewable organics and even stone! These eco-friendly raw materials include elastomers, high-tensile fibers, sealants and thermal reflectives.
Most of ATL's avant-garde synthetics allow the company to produce even stronger and safer crash-resistant fuel cell tanks for its many customers. An environmental corollary to this material transition is ATL's low-diffusion fuel bladders which markedly reduce gasoline and diesel vapor emissions. These new flexible fuel vessels readily accept all of the myriad bio-fuels coming to market. Ethanol fuels, bio-diesel, methanol, bio-jet and a host of other combustibles can all be interchanged safely in one ATL 'flex-fuel' bladder tank. And, although our roofs are not yet hosts to solar arrays and wind turbines, ATL has devised effective in-house programs for reducing gas and electric requirements, conserving water, curtailing solid waste and preserving photosynthesizing vegetation.
Summarily, ATL has long been a silent pioneer in both basic and advanced practices to help safeguard our vulnerable planet and its inhabitants. At ATL we don't just speak 'lean and green'; we live by it!
