Atlas Fibre Bolsters Manufacturing Capabilities by Acquiring Two Chicago Area Companies

SKOKIE, Ill., November 4, 2016 -- Atlas Fibre Company, the largest manufacturer of turned and precision ground laminate rod and a leading provider of finished machined components made out of plastic and non-metallic thermoset materials, announces its acquisition of two companies: Assured Quality Technologies (AQT) and Automation Liberation Group (ALG).  Both AQT and ALG are Chicagoland area companies. 

"With these acquisitions we are greatly expanding our manufacturing capabilities to service our numerous customers in multiple industries," said Atlas Fibre president, Richard Welch. "Our customers are demanding closer-tolerance fabricated components in shorter lead times, and adding these two quality companies increases our ability to meet customer needs for quality parts manufactured in a timely manner at competitive prices," said Welch.

"Another aspect of adding these two companies is the talent we are bringing on board,” said Welch.  “Both AQT and ALG have been highly successful and well managed companies so we are excited to bring their employees into the Atlas Fibre family.”
