ATAS International Inc. honored its 2016 Project of the Year winners at a recent awards banquet. This annual competition recognizes projects in which ATAS products have been incorporated into the design of the building.

Jim Bush, VP of Sales and Marketing of ATAS, stated, “We had a record number of entries submitted for the 2016 project of the year competition. The design creativity and aesthetics achieved through an architect’s vision, as well as the quality installation by the contractors, resulted in many showcase structures.
