LDC has been a hugely supportive and strategic partner, helping the group unlock its potential in new overseas markets and supporting our continued product development story.”

Gavin Hepburn, Managing Director
ATG Access

Continued success

With LDC’s support, ATG continued its expansion into multiple new overseas markets and by 2019 exports accounted for 40 per cent of total sales and the business had customers in more than 30 core markets worldwide, including Germany, Spain, China, Australia and Singapore

In recognition of this expansion, ATG scooped International Business of the Year, in partnership with the Department for International Trade, at the Liverpool ECHO Regional Business Awards.

Protecting growth

During the partnership with LDC, ATG increased employee numbers by 40 per cent and annual sales by 30 per cent to £21.1m for the year to October 2018.

In February 2019, LDC completed the sale of ATG Access to Hill & Smith Holdings plc in a deal which valued the business at £22.5m.
