ATC Structural was founded in 2005 on the principles of providing superior metal fabrication, ornamental and structural steel services to its customers. Our 40,000 square foot facility is conveniently located in north Salem, OR with easy I-5 access. The diversity of our capabilities allows us to excel in producing large production runs of custom fabrication as well as smaller quantities or prototypes.
ATC Structural is a family owned and operated company. The local owners started ATC Structural after 15 years of manufacturing, logistics and field installation of wireless telecom sites throughout the US. ATC Structural continues to be a recognized leader in site design, engineering and fabrication of steel components for the largest wireless telecom and vertical real-estate companies in the world.
After successfully launching and introducing several of the company’s product-lines, ATC Structural started to diversify and adapted to the ever changing market conditions and economic downturn. ATC’s reputation for quality metal fabrication and steel services were a natural fit for the structural steel market.
ATC Structural strives to be a recognized industry leader of high quality steel fabrication and value added services.
To achieve this goal we will work together with a high regard to professionalism, ethics and innovation, thereby consistently exceeding our customer expectations.
With this business philosophy we will ensure the continued growth and profitability of our company and recognize that our employees are the key to our continued success.
ATC’s commitment to sustainability
At ATC we take pride in making our living with one of the most recycled products on earth: steel!
Steel is the most recycled material in North America, according to the Steel Recycling Institute. More than 68 million tons are recycled each year. In fact, all new steel made in North America contains recycled steel, making steel the preferred material in “Green Building” initiatives.
There are two production methods for steel, EAF (electric-arc-furnace) and BOF (basic oxygen furnace), each using differing amounts of recycled materials.
Structural steel beams in the US are produced by EAF and contain at least 90% total recycled content, saving energy that would have been used to extract the raw material from the ground, and saving our landfills by encouraging the recycling of your old clunker, that washer or dryer, and old farming implements. While the BOF production method uses at least 25% recycled materials and relies much more heavily on raw materials – this steel is primarily plate, angles, tubes and flat bars, the material that connects the steel beams together in the field.
There are two primary measures in Green Building. The first is LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) and the second, an emerging method called LCI (Life-cycle inventory). Differing approaches are used to accomplish the same end result, and more can be learned about each method’s strengths at the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design’s Web site (http://www.usgbc.org/) and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory Web site (http://www.nrel.gov/).
