The Fassi Group, through its French holding company, which already owns Fassi France and Marrel, has acquired control of ATN, a leading manufacturer of self-propelled aerial platforms on rubber or tracks with electric or diesel engines.
ATN, the French manufacturer of self-propelled aerial platforms, has developed a range of products designed primarily to meet the needs of rental companies, a particularly thriving market in France. The quality and robustness of the materials used guarantee the machines a long life cycle even in harsh operating conditions, while the design continues to improve and constantly expand the range of products, without neglecting a design that facilitates and simplifies maintenance operations to maximize the profitability of its customers.
ATN was founded in 2000 in Tonneins, in the South-West of France between Bordeaux and Toulouse, and today the production and administrative plant is located a few kilometers, in the town of Fauillet in a plant, opened in 2013, of 20.000 square meters covered on six hectares of land. The initial idea was to develop aerial platforms with a vertical upright installed on a track called PIAF. The founders could boast a long previous experience having been the creators of this solution. Since the beginning, the company's mission has been to design and manufacture machines for rental companies, developing a complete range in different heights (today up to 9.92 m with a payload of 200 kg), on wheels or on tracks, first with electric motors and then also with diesel engines. More recently, the offer has been expanded with models with articulated arms and pantographs with heights up to 22.85 metres and capacities up to 230 kg.
With the acquisition of ATN, the Fassi Group continues its expansion process in all areas of lifting and, in particular, in the segment of stand-alone machines, i.e. not installed on a truck. In this regard, ATN will become the natural partner of the Italian Jekko, already in the orbit of the Fassi Group, to propose a complete range of solutions in an ever-growing market
The acquisition of ATN was completed at the end of July 2018 by the French holding company CTELM, controlled by the Fassi Group and chaired by Roger Boutonnet, which already holds control of Fassi France and Marrel.
