1. ATG - COMPANY

1.1. THE COMPANY HISTORY


ATG s.r.o. - Advanced Technology Group (hereafter ATG) is the Czech company without any
foreign share, founded in 1992. The main establishing persons are the former employees of
the National Institute for Materials in Prague. The main goal of the company was delivering of
all services in non-destructive testing of materials, containing workplaces design, production
and personnel qualification.

In 1993 was produced the first penetrant testing line and the year after first ultrasound
manipulator. All activities in personnel qualification involved the establishing of the certification
association called “APC” (hereafter APC) for the personnel in Prague 1995. This association
obtained about 50 members from Czech Republic and other countries, which have been the
owners until now. ATG company significantly cooperated on its qualification and certification
system, which was accredited by the Czech Accreditation Institute (ČIA) and German
Accreditation body (DAR). At the same time started ATG the providing of the qualification
courses focused on NDT personnel based on qualification and certification system of the
certification body Sector Cert (Germany) and later based on APC. In 1996 ATG established the
first subsidiary in Prague – LA Composite (Letov – ATG s.r.o.). This company is specialized in
composites development and composite parts production. One year later ATG opened its
branch QC-Plzeň in the city Pilsen, as the examination center of the qualification and
certification system of the APC and Sector Cert, to offer qualification for the NDT personnel
according to the EN 473 norm.

In 1995 were established another 2 subsidiaries in Prague: PK-Q, s.r.o. oriented in NDT
activities and STG, s.r.o. oriented in production of solar collectors. That time ATG enlarged its
activities in material and corrosion engineering. Later, in 2002, ATG opened its subsidiary in
Slovakia called ATG Slovakia, having a seat in Trenčín – close to the Czech Republic border.
During next year were established another 2 branches in Russia – Vimatek and ATG Russia. In
2008 we registered a new branche ATG Training and Consultancy in United Arab Emirates and
now in 2009 we are going to finalize openin new branche as ATG Turkey in Istanbul.
