The TEC Story

Atlanta’s Erosion Control Experts since 1995

From a simple start with one truck and two employees serving Cherokee County, The Erosion Company’s “can do” customer service attitude helped us quickly grow throughout the Southeast. Today, TEC has over 200 employees and mobilizes crews to manage a variety of jobs through the Atlanta metro area every day.

What makes TEC different?

We’re unique in our ability to meet a complete range of needs, getting to your site when you need us and providing the service you deserve. We can solve a wide array of erosion control and site compliance issues, eliminating the need for you to coordinate different providers in each location you manage.

TEC’s strategically located personnel and equipment enable us to quickly mobilize across the Atlanta area.

TEC is qualified as a Small Business Entity (SBE), but is still large enough to handle your most demanding requirements.

We’re experienced: our average field manager has over 10 years of experience and our average crew has been working with us for more than 6 years.

We are active in the community, holding leadership positions in many industry associations.

We E-Verify all of our employees to meet the most stringent government standards and are fully insured.

Our staff maintains multiple designations and industry certifications to help keep customers up to date and in compliance.
