Strengthening its cleanroom-testing products and services and extending its presence in Europe
Air Techniques International (ATI) has acquired DOP Solutions and the Academy for Cleanroom Testing in Letchworth, Hertfordshire, UK as part of an initiative to expand its global brand.
DOP Solutions manufactures aerosol photometers and generators, while the Academy for Cleanroom Testing (ACT) provides training and education services.
ATI, located in Maryland, US, has not revealed any financial details but says the acquisitions expand the breadth of its cleanroom-testing products and services and strengthens its position in Europe to support customers and partners in the region.
Since 1988, DOP Solutions has been a leader in clean air testing, offering aerosol detection and generation instruments and accessories including positive injection pumping systems, aerosol injection ports, sparge pipes, and smoke generators. The Academy for Cleanroom Testing grew from a heritage of providing theory and practical training for cleanroom testing, based on proven techniques and industry standards such as ISO 14644 and EN12469/NSF49.
Tim Triggs, Co-owner and Director of DOP Solutions and ACT, will lead ATI's business operations in the geographic region from Europe to India.
'By combining with ATI we gain the support and experience of a highly-respected global company, reinforcing our growth initiatives in our core business. We also look forward to helping our customers benefit from ATI's product range in new applications including filter testing and ChemBio defence,' he said.
Ron Adkins, President of ATI, added: 'ATI has begun an exciting period of new growth and expansion. We will bring innovative new products and services to our global customers and expand our application expertise to better serve their needs. We believe there is a strong cultural fit, and our combined capabilities will create significant value for our customers.'
