A-T Solutions Inc., a global leader in homeland and defense counterterrorism solutions headquartered in the Tysons Corner area of Vienna, Va., has been ranked No. 38 in the nation as one of the “Real Heroes of the American Economy” by Inc. magazine in its 2012 Inc. Hire Power Awards, a new annual ranking of the biggest job creators in America. A-T Solutions ranked second in job creation in Virginia and third within the U.S. government services industry. The company has experienced 251 percent growth in the past three years, expanding its workforce by 500 for a total of 785 employees.

“We were honored to be recognized as one of the ‘heroes’ of the American economy, because at A-T Solutions we consider it our mission to protect all the heroes who are working every day across the United States and abroad in the areas of law enforcement, national security, intelligence and defense to secure our world,” said Dennis Kelly, president and CEO of A-T Solutions. “It’s this mission and the passion our team has for our customers’ success that have allowed us to attract so many talented individuals to our team. We look forward to continuing to create jobs and grow our team to meet the needs of our country and our allies.”

A-T Solutions is an active participant in the national Veterans Jobs Initiative, which has helped the company achieve a 60 percent veteran-based workforce.

The Hire Power Awards is one of many accolades A-T Solutions has earned in 2012. Earlier this year, Inc. recognized A-T Solutions in its 500/5000 list of fastest growing private companies in America for the sixth consecutive year. The Washington Business Journal in November listed the company as one of the largest private companies in the D.C. metro area and in October ranked A-T Solutions as one of the region’s 50 Fastest Growing Companies. In September, CEO Dennis Kelly was named “Executive of the Year” by the American Business Awards.
