ATS Acquires Aviation Technical Testing, Inc.

Meet the Aviation NDT Experts from West St. Paul, Minnesota

Help us welcome a valuable addition to the ATS family!
Marietta, GA (September 3, 2019) —
We are pleased to announce that ATS has finalized an agreement to acquire Aviation Technical Testing, Inc. (AvTech) as a wholly owned subsidiary! This firm expands ATS’ footprint into the Midwest region, opening new avenues for business. In addition, this improves our ability to keep pace with the growing global demand for aerospace quality control.
AvTech possesses a wealth of experience providing NDT inspections, training, and support for clients in private and commercial aviation. Their seasoned technicians deftly perform a variety of methods, including UT, RT, MT, PT, Eddy Current, Thermography, Phased Array, and Remote Visual Inspections. AvTech prides itself in its core values of safety and commitment to excellence in aviation NDT solutions. They demonstrate these values by maintaining FAA approval as a certified aircraft repair station under 14 CFR part 145.
Since its founding in 2013, AvTech has operated out of West St. Paul Minnesota, a city within the Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan area. They serve the aviation inspection needs of local, national, and international clients with their veteran NDT technicians, who maintain certifications in accordance with NAS 410.
AvTech’s President, Mike Fortman, has led the company since its inception. Under his watchful eye, they have grown their capabilities to include testing, inspections, consulting, and training services. Mr. Fortman brings an array of qualifications, such as an A&P License, ASNT Level III certifications in PT, MT, ET, and UT methods, and over 35 years of experience in the aviation industry.
Our announcement today does not indicate a change in services to existing customers — AvTech will operate independently and continue to serve its clientele just as it has in the past. The only change is that they will now have ATS’ backing and resources to support their efforts in providing superior quality and value in their aviation inspection services.
AvTech’s expertise and credentials complement our own, and both organizations stand to grow from this union. As of September 3rd, 2019, we are excited to present Aviation Technical Testing, Inc. as the newest addition to the ATS family!
