ATX - The Company
ATX is Europe's market leader in the manufacture of test fixtures for electronic test procedures. As a specialized solution provider, the company designs and produces customer-specific products in semi-automated individual and small series production. Most of the devices are precision-engineered one-offs with varying degrees of complexity. Customers use the products for in-circuit, functional and final tests of electronic assemblies and printed circuit boards. ATX stands out from the competition in particular due to its high level of innovation and quality. As a medium-sized company, ATX employs over 150 people at two locations in Upper Bavaria (Pürgen) and Baden-Württemberg (Weil im Schönbuch).
Let us convince you of our test adapters in our showroom. We always display our latest devices for you and offer you the opportunity to test them in advance and get to know their individual properties even better.
We grew with the tasks, so quantum leaps were inevitable.
ATX grew faster than almost any other company in the fixture industry. There are good reasons for this: For us, it has always been a matter of course to meet demanding and innovative requirements. This quickly made the rounds among our customers. And so we were always able to take on exciting tasks, which we then grew dynamically and yet also sustainably. Every year, ATX produces, tests and implements up to 2,000 test devices. This is just an impressive example of our success.
ATX celebrates its 25th anniversary. As of today, the company employs about 175 people.
ATX acquires a majority stake in Leitec Test Solutions GmbH ("Leitec").
Harald Quandt Industriebeteiligungen acquires majority stake in ATX Hardware GmbH.
In total, ATX employs over 150 people at both locations.
ATX uses its own developed software for the controlled setting of hold-downs.
ATX expands the storage area at the Pürgen site by another 500sqm.
ATX takes over the complete adapter construction of Feinmetall (FM). Jointly conducted customer visits enable FM customers to be integrated into ATX to the greatest possible extent
The 2nd production site in Weil im Schönbuch has an extremely successful track record and is transferred to a 100% subsidiary of ATX Hardware. Now the independent company operates as ATX Hardware GmbH West. The signs point to expansion, as the comprehensively positioned ATX subsidiary offers many customers in Baden-Württemberg short distances and perfect services in addition to optimal technological performance.
Already 2 years after its generous expansion, the capacities of the production department at the Pürgen site are no longer sufficient. The renting of another 240 sqm of storage space opens the possibility to upgrade the already existing warehouse for production lines and to connect it to the production. ATX's efficient CNC production is extended by 100 sqm through this important measure.
ATX opens a second location for fixture production in the community of Weil im Schönbuch near Böblingen. The successful and completely modernized production in Pürgen serves as a model.
The production department at ATX is expanded and completely modernized. The workforce includes over 80 employees. Well over 10,000 devices have been delivered to customers all over the world since 1997.
New office space (160 sqm) will also be rented in the neighborhood for the administration department, while the vacated space will be used for production.
ATX continues to grow rapidly. 180 additional square meters rented in the neighboring building help to accommodate the ever-growing sales team.
In addition to the company's representation in the Benelux countries, a representative office is now also being established in Italy.
ATX now also offers its customers the efficient on-site service, which allows fixtures to be serviced directly and efficiently at the customer's premises.
The production and office space in Pürgen is expanded to 1,220 square meters through the construction of an additional building.
The fixture-building division of Siemens AG in Augsburg is taken over by ATX with its employees and technical equipment. A new warehouse is built at the company headquarters.
Our company moves and gets the perfect new location with a customized company building in the industrial area of Pürgen.
