A few years on and the company was well established as a level 3 services provider Anthony decided the expand the portfolio of the company and step in to the world of NDT Equipment.

Initially ATH began manufacturing small manual dye penetrant lines with dip tanks, wash stations, small drying ovens & dust storm developer cabinets.

These line served to fill a gap in the market for high quality UK manufactured and affordable penetrant lines. But as their popularity grew ATH looked to expand their range further.
