“I am excited to be part of this venture with ATSports,” Barry commented. “I’ve worked closely with the company for the past few years, and I’ve been continually impressed with not only the quality of their products, but also with their commitment to customer service. Leading this new training division will allow me the opportunity to share my knowledge with other companies and utilize my years of experience to ensure swift growth for ATSports customers.”

ATSports (Acrytech) President Brad Carroll also expressed his excitement about the merger and the benefit it will bring to the rapidly growing industry: “Over the past few years, we have seen an overwhelming growth in the sports surfacing industry. The demand for new courts has brought many new installers to the industry and we saw a strong need for installation training of ATSports products. Adding Sean Barry to our team gives us the ability to provide our clients with the skills they need to make their projects a success.”
