WE'RE REFORMING THE LIMITS OF COMPOSITE MANUFACTURING
As a technology leader in an evolving segment, we collaborate with our customers to constantly push limits on capabilities, geometries and complexity. We do early stage proof of concept prototyping to demonstrate feasibility. More than a typical “build to print” supplier ATC provides expertise in “design for manufacturing” approaches. We emphasize risk reduction, tooling concept development and process development to achieve robust maturity. We routinely run trade studies to determine the cost and rate optimized method for specific part types.
We then apply lean manufacturing and continuous improvement to rapidly industrialize from concept to high rate production. Our advanced engineering techniques enable expansion of cost-effective production at commercial volumes.
We have recently added significant process capability and capacity for laminate manufacture, profile shapes and stamp forming, ahead of demand and ability to mobilize from concept through qualification to production with agility and accuracy.
Our Profile Continuous Compression Molding (pCCM) equipment brings the unique capability to produce extremely long profile parts such as “C”, “H”, “J” and “T” profiles with one of the largest cross-sections of any supplier.

Leaning Out The Processes
ATC utilizes proprietary design, manufacturing equipment, and methods to achieve optimum results. All manufacturing processes are undertaken in-house to ensure quality control, uniformity, fast response, and cost-effectiveness. We utilize an unsurpassed range of processes and vertical integration to control cost enabling full spectrum solutions.
End to End
We’re unique in that we go beyond forming. We handle all manufacturing processes in-house to ensure consistent results and nimble response times.
