Let's face it anybody can purchase equipment, but without good people your business is doomed to fail.
It all began in 2001 when Jim Lain and Les Schurman attended the San Juan Business Incubation classes and program. In January of 2002, All American Technical Team was joined by Neil Schurman and then in May of 2002 joined by Keith Schurman. this group of leaders formed All American Technical Team and offered electrical and mechanical services as well as fabrication services to primarily the natural gas and mining industries. The team soon found itself subcontracting all machine work to Extreme Welding and Machine owned by Mike Weers. In a short time negotiations took place and the two businesses merged. This was completed in March of 2003 bringing Mike Weers in as the fifth owner.
The incubating company now in super growth mode was moved into an 8,000 square foot facility at 1201 Dowell Rd., Farmington, NM. The team grew to about 20 people at this facility and steadily increased equipment, service vehicles, and customer base. The team once again found itself outgrowing the facilities and in 2005 found a new home. All American Technical Team purchased its facility of 30,000 plus square feet at 3515 La Plata Hwy., Farmington, NM and went to work growing some more. We have also added heavy equipment repair, electric motor repair and rewinding. We are U.L. certified. The team is now approximately 40 full time employees strong and uses several part time folks as well.
Our company takes great pride in its employees and believes in the team spirit of achieving our goals. The motto we know you have heard before, and that we live by is "Together Everyone Achieves More"! One of our leaders was even quoted as saying "Let's face it anybody can purchase equipment but without good people your business is doomed to fail". The company offers its employees above average compensation and benefits not to mention involving affected team members in decision making processes when it comes to any project our customers give us. All of this comes together and forms a company that can offer our customers high quality work with dedicated fast turnaround times.
The bottom line is we care about our customers and our attention is on their needs always. We want to be part of your team and bring cost effective, smooth, and safe operations for America's utility requirements. You may have noticed that we have not said we are out of the incubation period and the fact is we just aren't. Due to more growth we purchased 2.5 more acres. With the new land we constructed 3,800 more square feet of new shop space and 8,000 square feet of office space.
We are working on the development of a design and drafting department; in short our goal is to become the one stop shop for the oil and gas, mining, power generation, municipal maintenance, and construction industries.
