Intertek, a leading provider of quality and safety solutions serving a wide range of industries worldwide has completed its acquisition of Architectural Testing, Inc. (ATI), one of the largest building products testing and certification companies in North America.

The acquisition recently gained regulatory approval and the transaction was finalized on December 24th, 2013. The merger of two of the leading building products testing companies, positions Intertek as the most comprehensive building products testing and certification agency in the world. The addition of ATI's expanded service capabilities provides Intertek with a stronger platform for continued growth both domestically and internationally, allowing for more diverse and comprehensive service offering to its customers."The purchase of ATI will provide a huge benefit to the industries we  collectively serve and the customers within them," says Gavin Campbell, Intertek's Senior Global Vice President of Building Products."ATI is one of the most respected names in the market and has a long-standing history of serving their customers well through instilling confidence and providing exceptional levels of customer  service. Now, as our companies become  one, we can leverage our complementary services, regional offices and testing  labs, as well as our laboratory and engineering network, to provide a more complete and comprehensive solution for the customer."

ATI President, Richard Biscoe, shares his excitement, "As a person fully  ingrained in ATI, our employees, and our customers, I am as energized by this  acquisition as I am proud. The ATI team takes great pride in the leadership position we have achieved in the market as well as the partnership we have with our customers. This feels less like an acquisition and more like we're joining a family of like-minded individuals with the goal of providing better services to our customers as well as the building products and construction industry."

Headquartered in York, PA, ATI was established in 1975 to verify the  performance of residential window systems. It has since expanded into related  residential and commercial markets including exterior wall systems and interior  finish systems. The company employs 303 highly specialized technicians,  engineers, and support professionals across 20 locations in the United States  and Canada.
