ATAS owners and sales team members sported pink shirts at METALCON International in Atlanta, GA to show support for the “It’s the Journey 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer”, and the “Metal Magnolias” team.  This 2-Day walk was founded 11 years ago by a breast cancer survivor, Randi Passoff.  It was the first time a trade show had come to Atlanta and partnered with “It’s the Journey” for this event.
 
Observing their 50th Anniversary in 2013, ATAS continued their yearlong celebration at METALCON International with a reception.  METALCON International is an annual conference and trade show focused on the use of metal in construction, including both retrofit and new construction projects, roofing and wall cladding, and residential and commercial buildings.
 
Peg Bus, Human Resources Manager for ATAS, said “ATAS has been a longtime member of the Metal Construction Association and exhibitor and sponsor at METALCON.  We were proud to support the Metal Magnolias team, who walked to raise awareness and funds for such a worthy cause while at METALCON in Atlanta.”
