”A.T.E. has a market leading position within automated testing equipment in the UK and has succeeded well in combining systems, applications and service.

”We are looking forward to joining Bergman & Beving. We think Bergman & Beving, with their strong position and eternal ownership horizon, provides for a good future for A.T.E., says the previous majority owner Steven Lees, who will continue in the company.
