Tom Burdick is an AOG patriarch with a tenure spanning over three decades. A part-timer turned lifer, Tom started his career as a protégé of AOG’s founding lab manager and has been a part of our family ever since. Tom’s keen eye and deep knowledge of Kansas City soil and rock properties make him a sought after local expert and a lifeline for design firms with complex testing needs.
