ATS Systems was founded in July of 2006, when ATS Workholding purchased SMW Systems. With that merger, ATS Systems set the stage to become a firm with unusual product breadth and an unsurpassed team of more than 60 staff, headquartered in Rancho Santa Margarita, California. Today, ATS Systems serves clients nationwide with top of the line products, attentive service, and ongoing support to maximize performance.
Our approach is unique, and has earned the respect of businesses across the country. Our local managers, available in over 14 regions across the United States, provide our clients with in-shop sales consultations to match the right products to applications. Once this is determined, ATS highly experienced operations staff engineer, build, and configure these products. At that point, our customers rely upon our excellent service technicians, who install products, train manufacturers their safe use, and support them for their lifetime.
Prior to the acquisition, ATS Workholding had for decades been North America’s largest producer of collet-chucks. The firm’s products are ubiquitous workholding devices, seen and used in almost every machine shop. The ATS brand name and reputation is earned – based on the employment of talented staff and their use of cutting-edge production processes. The firm is proud to have been an early adopter of multi-tasking and automation processes. All of the above have helped ATS to hone its terrific reputation for customer service and quality, timely delivery.
