With the uncertainty that has surrounded us recently, some amazing small business owners have stepped up to help our community in whatever way they can. We want to recognize their efforts!
Today’s Hero – ATLANCO
Today we shine the spotlight on ATLANCO, suppliers of personal equipment, material and uniforms to the military, law enforcement and public safety markets. They adapted quickly by having administrative employees work from home when possible and institued social distancing policies and split-shift warehouse hours in order to keep personnel safe and employed.
When the need for additional equipment for frontline healthcare arose, ATLANCO answered the call by donating PPE masks to several local agencies including the Marietta and Canton Police Departments, Cherokee and Bartow Sheriff’s Offices, and Marietta Fire Department. They are also currently designing several unique pieces of PPE gear to be made locally in Marietta and in their factory in Honduras. ATLANCO is also working with the Georgia non-profit All Hands On by providing clothing for their interpreters who work to keep the deaf community of Georgia informed during this difficult time.
ATLANCO has gone above and beyond the call of duty by providing PPE masks and clothing to those on the front lines. Please continue to support your local small businesses like ATLANCO!
