ATS Global

Year of Investment 2020

Description of the portfolio company

ATS Global is a global independent IT and Operations Technology solution provider active in the field of digital transformation of the manufacturing industry. The company delivers consultancy and inhouse as well as 3rd party software solutions, both in fixed price projects and SLAs/SMAs. Services are delivered to global customers in both discrete and continuous manufacturing.

Investment rationale

After growing their business for 30+ years into 25+ countries and 40+ acquisitions, founders sought a new shareholder for growth capital and partnership for future growth towards joint exit. Rabo Investments has acquired a minority stake in the company and supports ATS Global in pursuing growth both autonomously on the back of favourable industry dynamics & continuously evolving solutions as well as via M&A with ATS Global being well positioned to be a consolidator due to its global coverage in a fragmented market with many local players.
