ATMC, a security firm, has staked its headquarters claim in downtown Detroit, taking office space in the Guardian Building.
ATMC is the holding company for Actron Systems
and Tricon Security Group
, a couple of security and surveillance companies that recently merged. The bulk of their operations are remaining in the suburbs, Allen Park and Taylor, but the ATMC corporate staff is setting up shop in the heart of the Motor City.
"There is definitely opportunity down here," says Michael Whittaker, president & CEO of ATMC. "I think we're seeing a change of the landscape of doing things better, faster and cheaper."
ATMC's two companies currently employ 300 people nationwide. It has 10 people in the Guardian Building
. The firm is looking at expanding its office by 1,000 square feet this summer to accommodate its growing staff.
"We're always looking for sales professionals, which are based in downtown Detroit," Whittaker says.
