Expanding Industrial Services in the United Kingdom: Bilfinger Berger acquires ATG

Bilfinger Berger has acquired British industrial service provider ATG, expanding its capacity in measurement, control and automation engineering in the United Kingdom. ATG generates an annual volume of €25 million and employs 250 people. The company had previously been owned by its management group, which will continue to run the business. The two parties have agreed not to disclose details of the purchase price.

ATG specializes in the design, manufacture, installation and maintenance of integrated electronic systems and has long-standing relationships with prominent industrial companies such as Shell, KMI, Eli Lilly and Siemens. The acquisition ideally complements the product range of Bilfinger Berger Industrial Services in the United Kingdom. Annual volume in the British industrial service business in 2010 was in the order of €250 million, putting the Group among the market leaders in the region.

The targeted expansion of the services business is the focus of Bilfinger Berger's corporate strategy. The Group is the largest provider of industrial services for the process industry in Europe, occupies a leading position in the maintenance and repair of power plants and is number one in the facility services industry in Germany. Without its Australian activities, which were recently sold, Bilfinger Berger's output volume in 2010 is expected to be around €8 billion. Services account for approximately 80 percent of that total.
