Benchmark International Advises on the Sale of H&G Systems Limited to ATS Global

Benchmark International is pleased to announce the sale of H&G Systems Limited to ATS Global.

From their centrally based office and workshop facility in Broxburn – Livingston, H&G Systems Limited are well positioned to cover the needs of their customer base throughout the UK. With operational demo kit and skilled staff on-hand, H&G welcome customers to their premises to discuss their Industrial Process & Control Automation requirements further.

ATS is The Independent Solution Provider for Industrial, Process and Information Technology users world-wide. They provide products and services for all three levels of the automation pyramid; control, execution and information. ATS is an innovative, strategic knowledge partner offering seven areas of expertise: control technologies, SCADA/HMI, programming languages, communication & networks, databases, manufacturing execution systems and lean six sigma & quality.

John Purves, Country Manager of H&G Systems said: “I am very proud of our achievements at H&G Systems Ltd. over the last fourteen years and of the strong growth and excellent service it has provided to our customers. The decision to merge was taken after we recognised that only a larger, strategic owner could take H&G Systems Ltd. to the next phase of its development. The businesses fit together well since both companies are very similar but with complementary customer bases. The industry in which we deliver projects and services is dynamic and our customers need to respond to both global opportunities and local industry transformation. As a global and independent solution provider, ATS has all the right ingredients to help our customers meet their challenges, to power further growth, to provide a secure home for the team, and to strengthen technical support for our customers. While we add new services and products to our portfolio, we will continue to provide innovative and reliable process solutions to our existing customers.”

On behalf of everyone at Benchmark International, we would like to wish both parties every success for the future.
