A message from Christopher M. Tiso, President & Founder of ATS Environmental

Making it easy!

Welcome to ATS Environmental – a company that makes stressful & complicated processes easy for our clients.   As the company founder, I have always loved finding easy ways to resolve complex issues.   My main area of focus is in the environmental field.   I love finding easy ways for our clients to control their environmental risk.

I also take pride in being the first company in our industry to actively solicit feedback from our customers.  It’s easy to see how we’re doing.   Read our customer reviews online.

How ATS started

I did not follow the usual path to get where I am today. I have a law degree from Georgetown & took more classes in tax law than any lawyer I know.  I loved figuring out the complex tax code & making it simple to understand. While I was at school, I spoke with many practicing lawyers and was struck by how many were dissatisfied with the career path they chose. I didn’t want that for myself & made a commitment to finding a different way to use my skills.

Helping Real Estate Agents – Property Buyers & Sellers

One day I read a newspaper article describing a problem a new homeowner was having with a leaking oil tank. I was surprised to learn that there wasn’t an easy way for a person to test an oil tank for leaks before buying a home.   With some advice from my father (who is a real rocket scientist), I started an environmental testing company.  Hard to believe that was more than 17 years ago!

We developed a niche in testing fuel storage tanks for the real estate market.  The computerized testing technology we use, some of it proprietary, provides test results and an easy to read report in an hour.  We pride ourselves on making it easy for realtors and home buyers and sellers to get through this stressful process.

Business Expansion – Commercial & Industrial

With the help of a fantastic team of overachievers, I expanded the business into other areas including septic inspections and private well testing.   We also operate a commercial & industrial division.   Our mission remains the same.  Whether the customer is buying a home or trying to comply with complex environmental regulations, we make it easy!
