Atlas Material Testing Technology has formed a partnership with ACT Test Panels to distribute within the European market.
ACT serves the automotive, appliance, heavy equipment, aerospace and metal forming and manufacturing customers for the test panel industry; now the two companies have joined forces, ACT will produce the panels and Atlas will sell them throughout Europe.
Jamie Chesler, General Manager Marketing & Aftermarket for Atlas Material Testing Technology said, “There is a tremendous amount of overlap in our core customers. We know the market and will now be able to sell them a more comprehensive, one-stop solution for their testing needs.”
Atlas will begin by stocking TRU panels for immediate delivery and later sell ACT’s entire range of panels. The TRU panels assure accurate spray out, flow, color match, and coverage evaluations and are available prepackaged with VCI paper. They are also formulated for longer shelf-life and batch-to-batch consistency.
Brad Kimpell, Vice President of Business Development at ACT said, “As leaders in our respective industries, we think this relationship will help both companies grow, furthering our commitment to be as close to our customers as possible.”
