Since its founding in 1975, AMERICAN SYSTEMS has built and maintained a reputation as both a contractor and an employer of choice. These distinctions, which go hand-in-hand, are based on a culture built around accountability, ownership, ethics, and quality.

ACCOUNTABILITY As “co-owners” of AMERICAN SYSTEMS, our employees are jointly accountable for achieving the Company’s strategic objectives, and this permeates the other elements of our overall culture.

OWNERSHIP As a 100% employee-owned company through our Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP), our workforce thinks and acts like owners, and the results show in our daily execution, whether in the business office or in the field.

ETHICS We take ethics seriously. Our award-winning quarterly training vignette videos and annual Code of Business Ethics & Conduct refreshers are modeled from the top-down through our senior leadership.

QUALITY Our commitment to quality and continuous improvement in our business processes and program execution is validated by our ISO 9001:2015 registration and reinforced through our proprietary Service Delivery Framework called MERGE (Mission-Engaged Resources Geared to the Enterprise), which has as a core tenet a process of documented continuous improvement.

Our culture has been, and continues to be, the backbone of AMERICAN SYSTEMS. Through dedicated adherence to these principles, we have forged a decades-long legacy as an industry standard-bearer and an award-winning Company.
