KTA-Tator, Inc. (KTA) was founded in 1949 by Kenneth Tator to address the need for independent, unbiased assessments of the quality and performance of protective coatings used in corrosive environments. Dedication to innovation and leadership has been a hallmark of the company throughout its history. This dedication to innovation, which is imbedded in the very fabric of the company, has led to the development of many pioneering services. It has also led to great diversification, as the talents, skills and capabilities applied in one industry are transferred to other industries and parallel fields of practice.
Throughout this journey, two of our core values have remained staunchly in place. KTA regards quality and integrity to be essential prerequisites for all that we undertake. Quality and Integrity since 1949 is not a marketing slogan to us. It represents a moral commitment that is shared by the people who make KTA a first-in-class company – a company of choice.
“I am given the opportunity to be as successful and influential as I want to be in the industry.”
“This is my home away from home and a second family to me. My job stays business, I love challenges, and my division works as a team.”
“The warm, friendly, and family-oriented environment. I feel very fortunate to be able to call KTA my "home away from home". It is truly one of those fringe benefits that you just can't quantify.”
“KTA management always encourages a "Do What's Right" philosophy/attitude.”
“They are a company of integrity. They are honest and reliable in all their business dealing. They are always looking for ways to improve their work ethics.”
