Metal Fabricator AT&F Selected For Evolution of Manufacturing Award

AT&F has been selected by Smart Business Magazine as one of the 2021 Evolution of Manufacturing honorees. AT&F will be recognized at the Evolution of Manufacturing virtual conference on February 25th and mentioned in a special editorial report in the February 2021 edition of Smart Business Magazine. According to the conference website, “Since 2006, the Evolution of Manufacturing Conference & Awards honor Northeast Ohio manufacturers for their ability to innovate, create and drive these processes resulting in a positive impact on their bottom line.” The 2021 award is especially honorable because it was given to manufacturing businesses in Northern Ohio that have proven to successfully evolve their manufacturing operations to adapt to the global economy, as well as this past year during COVID-19.


This recognition reflects AT&F’s efforts to continue to operate and serve its customers during the pandemic by Building, Protecting, Energizing, and Moving the World through Metal Fabricating. Much of the work AT&F performs is vital to national defense and cannot be slowed or halted. The Company has taken extensive measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in their operations, including aggressive education, strict sanitation, and “six-foot rule” distancing. It is AT&F’s pleasure to continue providing custom metal fabricating solutions to its customers. The Company wishes everyone health and safety during the remainder of this pandemic, and as they often say, “keep your wits about you.”
