In 1988, Aerofil Technology, Inc. began in Sullivan, Missouri with just two aerosol lines and less than 50,000 square feet of space.
Since then, ATI has greatly expanded and now serves clients around the world under the same trusted ownership of Jack F. Shelby, Robert W. Dunaway, and Robert J. Macher. Our capabilities, customer base and facility size have grown exponentially during the past 29 years. Rapid market acceptance driven by our unwavering commitment to enterprise excellence sparked an immediate expansion of nearly 60,000 square feet within just two years of operation. Shortly thereafter, between 1990 and 2005, the ownership group continued to reinvest in itself with additional facility expansions and the installation of several high speed packaging lines to both meet and exceed our growing customer demand. In the spring of 2007, the owners led the charge on a bold and daring new direction adopting the philosophies and practices of the Toyota Production System (TPS). Through their entrepreneurial spirit and vision, ATI embarked on a Lean continuous improvement journey that would forever change the face of our organization and blaze a new trail that has now engaged an entire industry. Today, ATI is a Lean continuous improvement culture with over 500 full-time employees, and 10 production lines. Our ever-growing operations offer over 520,000 square feet of space. Our facility and services exceed all federal and state regulations and guidelines. ATI's continued success stems from a tradition of hard work, exceptional customer service and the relentless pursuit and elimination of waste in its never ending drive toward enterprise excellence.
