ATT (not AT&T) comes to the Springs
Advanced Transportation Technologies (ATT), a privately owned transportation modernization company, opened a marketing and sales office Jan. 22 at 8610 Explorer Drive. ATT has three employees there now and projects it will eventually have eight, according to Kathleen Dugan, the company's director of sales and marketing. Its new assembly plant in Rocky Ford will have 40 employess within 4-6 months and 80 by early next year. Larry Wessels from Lakewood started the company with financial backing from retired major general John Hawley of Monument, founder of CollaborX Inc. Their initial product line is a patented set of pneumatic-powered products that will save truck drivers time when rebalancing loads to meet highway weight restrictions and will also prevent physical injuries to truck drivers.
