300 months, 1,300 weeks, 9,131 days - In 25 years from a small company to Europe's market leader in test fixture construction.
On 15 May 1997, Hans Drexler and Benedikt Epple laid the foundation stone of the success story of the Pürgener company by founding A.T.i-Hardware GmbH. Only one year later, the company was renamed ATX Hardware GmbH.
On 01.07.1997, the doors of ATX Hardware GmbH finally opened in Eching am Ammersee with only 7 employees. As early as 2000, the company expanded for the first time and moved into a new, customised company building in Pürgen. To this day, the company's headquarters are located in the Upper Bavarian town.
In addition to the expansion of production and office space and modernisation, other important milestones in the company's history soon followed, such as the founding of a second location in the community of Weil im Schönbuch near Böblingen (Baden-Württemberg). By 2010, the company already had over 80 employees, who had delivered well over 10,000 test fixtures to customers all over the world since the company was founded. Ten years later, in 2020, Harald Quandt Industriebeteiligungen GmbH took over the majority of ATX Hardware GmbH. The goal of the management and the Harald Quandt family, in cooperation with all 170 employees of the group, is to further expand the market leadership in Europe and to grow internationally. The next major milestone for the company is already being planned with the construction of a new company building and thus further expansion at the main location in Pürgen. Since it has always been a matter of course for ATX Hardware GmbH to meet demanding and innovative requirements, the company is growing faster than almost any other company in the adapter industry. Up to 2,000 test devices are produced, tested and implemented by ATX Hardware GmbH every year.
Today - 25 years after its foundation - ATX Hardware GmbH has delivered more than 40,000 adapters, consolidated its location, multiplied its number of employees and grown from a small company into Europe's market leader in test fixture manufacturing. They owe this not only to their company founders and loyal customers, but also to their dedicated employees. Their commitment and ideas, their know-how and their customer-oriented service have made ATX Hardware GmbH the company it is today.
The ATX Hardware GmbH
The market leader develops and produces customised test fixtures in semi-automated individual and small series production.

Customers use the test fixtures of ATX Hardware GmbH for in-circuit, functional and final tests of electronic assemblies and printed circuit boards. The market leader has been setting itself apart from the competition for 25 years, particularly through its high level of innovation and quality.
