A privately-owned business with 40 years experience

Created with sketchtool.

ATM is one of the UK's leading highway maintenance, fencing, landscaping and ecology contractors.

Established back in 1979, around the same time that the UK coal mining industry began to decline, ATM was charged with the task of reclaiming the land, seeding, planting and beautifying the mine environment and other redundant sites across Yorkshire and North East of England. Fast forward to today and ATM has become one of the UK's leading providers of Vegetation Management, Fencing, Landscaping and Ecology services; providing award-winning solutions tailored to meet client’s needs. With an extensive inhouse resource of directly employed personnel and an impressive range of wholly owned vehicles and plant, ATM has evolved into a company with the infrastructure to handle large, complex and demanding projects.
