Stories of Success


A great strength of ATN in a Covid-19 environment is their willingness to be flexible and adaptable in their ability to teach and come on-site. They were mindful of all the CDC constraints and no other provider has been willing to work in that space. Kudos to ATN's capabilities.


ATN has been an integral training partner to 3M Guin since 2003. They have provided our annual HAZWOPER and Confined Space Rescue training that has helped to kept our response team safe and our site free from chemical spills or OSHA fines. This training has provided 3M Guin avoidance cost impacts of well over $250,000 in the reduction of workman’s compensation claims and potential accidents. I would recommend ATN to any business needing ESH training because they are always responsive to our needs and even haul their hazmat trailer on-site to help us do necessary hands-on drills. The training is always very interactive, and Robert Tomlinson and Bruce Perdue bring an extra dose of fun to the class to make it more enjoyable and memorable!

-Jacob E Spillers, EHS & Quality Manager

Briggs and Stratton Corporation

“Over the last 10 years ATN has been a valued partner with Briggs & Stratton, Auburn Plant, for a large portion of our Technical Training. The instructors are subject matter experts not only in a class room setting but how the training applies on the plant floor. Being a 24/7 operation, they are willing to meet our team members schedule to deliver the training. Would highly recommend to others.”

-Jerry “Cisco” King, Human Resources Manager

SEA Wire and Cable, Inc.

ATN has been a part of SEA Wire and Cable Inc Quality team from the beginning of our Quest for AS9100. Ronnie Kisor and Chris Anderson were contacts and I continue to work with Chris till this day.

All members of the ATN staff have always been very pleasant and professional in dealing with SEA. In 2018 ATN worked with SEA to continue the Root Cause and internal auditing Education of our employees. I look forward working with them again in the future.

J X Nippon Oil and Energy Lubricants America, LLC

“During the last several years, ATN has assisted JX Nippon Oil & Energy USA Inc with several Quality Systems and Environment, Health and Safety Projects. Due, in part, to our partnership with ATN, JXNOEUSA has achieved and maintained an outstanding environmental and safety record.”

-Sonya Reynolds, Plant Manager

Connector Manufacturing Company of America

“The yearly OSHA training course was an excellent class. The information was presented in a way that was easy to understand and follow for all the employees who attended. Tim Croley, the instructor, is very knowledgeable on all safety topics and was able to share his knowledge and experiences with the employees for Connector Manufacturing Company/Hubbell Corporation. We also have many new employees, so it was great to have a presentation that provides various examples of equipment, tools, and work areas for the training course. The OSHA training class was a great opportunity to learn more about OSHA regulations and how they affect our industry.

We would like to thank Mr. Croley and ATN for all the training they have provided over the last couple of years. It has been very beneficial, and we look forward to using them in the future.”

-Mona Mullins, Plant Manager

Supreme Cores Alabama, Inc.

“The work that Alan Hill, Tom Morgan and interns from the APC did helped our organization receive its ISO 9001:2015 certification. This certification is required by several of our large clients and having it ensures continued business with these companies. It also allows us to go after new busy. We will continue using APC to support our process needs.”

-Cristopher Grossman, Owner and Operations Manager


I am proud that during our first attempt at acquiring IATF 16949 Certification with the outstanding guidance of Alabama Technology Network (ATN) we achieved our goal. We recently conducted our surveillance audit with our registrar and performed very well with no major nonconformances. I know that without the consultation and guidance from ATN we would have not been able to meet our customers’ requirements nor acquire new business for the company. We are very pleased with the performance of ATN and will continue to use their services in the future.
