Their “hands-on” pragmatic approach has enabled ATG® to deliver customer innovations whilst growing their business and challenging convention.
A fully integrated approach
The ATG® R&D facility focuses on developing technology platforms as opposed to one-off individual gloves. This approach enables them to look at customer needs and then to select and combine the necessary technology platforms. Using this approach they are able to produce innovative class leading gloves that change the customer experience for the better.
ATG® is a fully integrated manufacturer. They control all elements of the manufacturing. From covering and twisting of yarns, knitting liners, coating, to finishing and packing. Being fully integrated business helps in the development and transition of products from laboratory concept to full production.
Once in production, ATG® operate according to ISO 9001 standards to control the manufacturing process, which enables them to deliver consistently high quality gloves each and every time.
Not a single element of any product is outsourced.
ATG® operate from multiple manufacturing facilities in Sri Lanka and employ more than 2,000 people.
Committed to environmental and consumer safety
ATG® are certified and use ISO 14001 as the foundations for their environmental framework. It’s part of their everyday life. When they look to modify, change or implement a new process it’s always has to satisfy their ISO 14001 ideology.
As an example of a commitment to ISO 14001, ATG® have re-engineered their whole manufacturing process to be in line with the EU directive for the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemical Substances.
This new law came into force on 1st June 2007 and since then ATG® have realized the anticipated benefits to both the environment and their workforce who make the gloves.
