In 2004, Billy Gray had fallen in love with land surveying and had dreams of starting his own company. With a prospective client showing interest and one orange truck, Billy Gray and Keith Burns formed Atlas Surveying, Inc.’s first survey crew. The two frequently heard the phrase “you two are out of our minds”. They didn’t listen to the naysayers and the outside noise. Billy and Keith persevered and believed in each other and their mutual vision. The duo worked long hours, picked up every project that came their way and were passionate about what they were doing. Little did they know what dividends their hard work would yield.
