About the Company
American Athletix was founded by a team of experienced bleacher industry veterans who recognized the need for a fresh new approach. Dedicated to building an organization based on exceptional service and value, the American Athletix team created something long overdue in the industry—a better choice. The American Athletix choice is clearly different: responsive, customer-first services and products at a fair price.
The "A-Team" is lead by owners Tim Philippart and Mark Scott, with nearly three decades as service providers entrusted by hundreds of schools to take care of their bleachers. As a former school board president, Tim is uniquely qualified to understand the financial challenges facing bleacher owners and their need to maximize value with each expenditure.
"One of the best parts of starting American Athletix," said Tim, "is the spirit with which we have been welcomed. Schools have been looking for a choice that puts their needs first and American Athletix is dedicated to that. Schools are embracing the opportunity to get price comparisons on everything from repairs to inspections to replacement boards and parts."
Mark became co-owner of American Athletix in 2010. A life-long West Michigan native Mark brings nearly twenty years of bleacher experience to American Athletix. One client, from the east coast, said of Mark, “He is the reason I repair bleachers. He is very patient and knowledgeable. He coached me through some of my early projects when I had many questions.” Since we sell boards, power units and parts all over the United States and, even, some foreign countries it is good to know that you, whether a bleacher owner or a bleacher repair company, have a resource like Mark.
The staff at American Athletix consists of some of the most experienced bleacher and gym equipment professionals in the industry. With decades of problem-solving experience, our customer service staff has the tools to find solutions to your most challenging bleacher issues. The bleacher pros at American Athletix have completed thousands of inspections on bleachers of nearly every make, model and size. We stand ready to put this depth of knowledge to work for you and your facility.
With around 50 years of bleacher experience and nearly thirty years of professional rigging, we are also the pros for both your bleachers and gym equipment.
