Atlas Tube On The Move

Atlas Tube was on the road again this week talking all things structural tubing to engineers around the Midwest. Bill Burger was at the Structural Engineers Association of Michigan’s Spring Conference in Lansing, MI, while Brad Fletcher visited the Structural Engineers Association of Kentucky Annual Show in Louisville. Both events provided tremendous opportunities for our experienced team to educate and advocate for structural steel. Interactions with the Structural Engineers of America continue to be informative and interesting for all involved. Aside from visiting these conferences, Atlas also was the exclusive sponsor for the Structural Engineers Association of Illinois’ dinner that was held May 7th.
