Verified Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (renews every 3 years)

Atriax, PLLC has been verified by the US Department of Veterans Affairs’ Center for Verification and Evaluation as a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB). In 2023, Atriax was awarded the platinum medallion by the HIRE Vets Program after being awarded the gold medallion in the HIRE Vets Program in 2022. The HIRE Vets Medallion Award is the only federal-level veterans’ employment award that recognizes a company or organization’s commitment to veteran hiring, retention, and professional development. Atriax was one of only 7 North Carolina businesses to receive the Platinum Medallion in 2023.

Not only is the company 100% owned by Veterans, Atriax is committed to the hiring of Veterans. At any given time, Atriax typically has 20-25% of full-time staff that are Veterans of the armed services.

Atriax is active in the local Veterans’ community through activities such as the Hickory region Veterans Stand Down to assist local Veterans with basic services.
