ATI Industrial Automation Breaks Ground on New Headquarters

ATI Industrial Automation recently broke ground on the expansion of its corporate and manufacturing headquarters in Apex, NC. This expansion-the largest in ATI's 28-year history-will increase the size of its Apex facility to 185,000 square feet. "Global demand for our robotic end-effectors continues to grow," said ATI Chairman Keith Morris. "This latest major expansion, our second in just four years, will help us to meet the growing needs of our worldwide client base."

ATI formed in 1989 as the brainchild of engineers Keith Morris, Chairman; Robert Little, CEO; and Dwayne Perry, Chief Sensor Technologist. The firm has grown from a small team with a tiny office in Garner, NC, to a global work force of 300 employee-owners. Corporate and manufacturing headquarters are located in Apex, NC, but ATI has added business offices in Michigan, China, Mexico and Brazil to better serve its ever-growing customer network.

"The new addition will increase the size of the engineering, warehouse and production floor areas, and will be staffed by 275 new employees," said a company spokesperson. "For ATI customers, the expansion means quicker turnaround of new designs, increased production capacities to keep lead times short and even more of the exceptional service and support they depend on. The expansion gives way to a new engineering and robotic lab for creative development of end effectors. Continuous improvement and on-time delivery are key aspects of ATI's business philosophy; the new expansion is simply the next step in anticipating customer needs."

ATI's robotic end-effector products optimize industrial applications in fields such as robotics, aerospace, biomedical, automotive, electronics, applied research, academics, nuclear and government. CEO Robert Little credits the company's strong growth to the array of unique customer applications that ATI serves. Little explains, "This diversity in our customer base, coupled with our focus on engineering innovation and customer service, has allowed us to succeed despite a fluctuating global economy and lower-cost overseas competition. In fact, nearly 50 percent of our sales are exported to world markets. We have created 150 new jobs since 2012, and this new expansion will create an additional 275."
