“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
