ATC Drivetrain, a Farmington Hills-based independent global remanufacturer of automotive powertrain and drivetrain systems, has acquired Treharne Automotive Engineering and its group companies in the United Kingdom.
Treharne is focused on electric vehicle battery life cycle management, including second-life applications, recycling, and diagnostic and test equipment for powertrain systems.
ATC provides environmentally friendly remanufacturing solutions for powertrain and drivetrain products regardless of the technology powering the vehicle. This includes batteries, electric drive units, engines, transmissions, and other driveline products.
ATC also offers engineering services that include warranty root cause analysis and testing, quality audits, production rework and recycling. ATC serves the global automotive industry from its facilities in the USA, United Kingdom and China.
“We are thrilled to welcome the Treharne team to ATC,” says Greg Heald, president and CEO of ATC Drivetrain. “The companies share a common vision of the future of electrification in the automotive industry, as well as the significant opportunities and challenges which lie ahead as the industry makes that transition. Treharne’s talented team shares our passion for customer service and positive environmental impact, and their expertise will complement the electrification developments already in progress at ATC.”
As the automotive industry continues to migrate beyond traditional internal combustion engines to electrified systems, ATC continues to build competencies that will support customers’ global needs in the EV and hybrid powertrain areas.
The acquisition bolsters ATC competencies to support customers’ global needs in the EV and hybrid powertrain areas.
“Adding Treharne’s second life and battery recycling experience supports ATC’s ongoing efforts to provide solutions across the full life cycle of the EV battery,” Heald says. “We are eager to share our combined offerings and expertise with our global customer base to help them to meet their electrification objectives of today and tomorrow.”
