It’s 1979 and Robert Allred is armed with water treatment chemicals, selling them out of his pea green 1970 Chevy station wagon. Later that year, ATS was born. Allred’s desire was to provide a level of service the client needed and deserved, as well as the freedom to take on special projects as needed by the clients. Read more about how ATS™ evolved into a leading water treatment company, ATS Innova™, along with offering safety showers, ATS ShieldSafe®, beginning in 2016.

When Allred retired in 2012, his son, Richard Allred, took over and purchased the company. Richard has been in the business since 1995 and worked in several positions. Bob was a chemist and Richard had formal education in international business and marketing.

ATS ShieldSafe® Showers

In 2016, we added safety showers in the form of ATS ShieldSafe, where we designed several showers that offered many benefits, along with options, ensuring the right safety shower for worker treatment and protection. We carry showers for hot and cold conditions, plumbed or gravity-fed showers, and mobile and stationary – all designed with stainless steel construction for the most robust showers available.  The Slogan for ATS Innova is Improving LIFE, One Drop at a Time, with the overall corporate slogan as Stewards of Humanity.

ATS Vision for the Future

The future for ATS includes evolving into agricultural treatment that includes:


  • Nutrients
  • Algaecide
  • Drip lines
  • Descaling


In the next 18 months, we will be expanding into Brazil with soybean and coffee plantations, as well as in Chile and other parts of the U.S. Regarding the safety shower side, we will expand our selection of rental showers with trailers and adding decontaminating showers for chemical attack victims. We also just signed a General Services Administration (GSA) contract for our tank-fed and mobile emergency showers. Currently, we are developing a line of rental equipment and lines of water treatment for construction companies.

Our ultimate goal is providing clean water, best access to food supplies, and safety for people worldwide. Out future vision includes being in Uruguay, Saudi Arabia, China, and India.
