ATC Drivetrain Acquires International Reman Leader
 • Acquisition Marks Step Towards a Global Reman Enterprise
 • First Acquisition for ATC Under Ownership of Crestview Partners
ATC Drivetrain, a leading independent remanufacturer of automotive drivetrain components headquartered in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, announced today that it has acquired ATP Automotive Transmission Remanufacturing Specialists Limited, A.T.P. Electronic Developments Limited and ATP Holdings USA, LLC (collectively “ATP”) from ATP’s founder Alan Smart. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Founded in 1969, ATP is a Cannock, United Kingdom-based leading European independent remanufacturer of automatic transmissions, including torque converters and automated manual transmissions, electronics and mechatronics, as well as a manufacturer of diagnostics systems and provider of associated services. ATP’s client base includes various European and global OEMs and suppliers in Europe and North America.
Greg Heald, ATC’s President, CEO and a member of its board of directors, said, "“We are excited to bring together these two companies which not only complement each other in the areas of technology, footprint and customer base, but also share common core values focused on providing market-leading service to our customers, team members and shareholders.”
Alex Rose, Partner and Co-Head of Industrials at Crestview Partners, said, “Since our acquisition of ATC in February 2018, ATC’s leadership team and board have been focused on pursuing global expansion and technology diversification in support of ATC’s customers’ needs. The combination of ATC and ATP creates a company with over 130 years of global automotive remanufacturing experience which will expand ATC’s ability to provide products and service to the company’s growing customer base around the world.”
