We Believe There's a Better Way to Bring Medical Devices to Market

ATL Technology is a full-service, vertically integrated, engineering and manufacturing partner to the top medical device OEMs in the world through the full product lifecycle.


But how did we get here?

How We Started

Before the inception of ATL Technology, there was a visionary idea.

While working at a local cable supplier, our founder, Brad Brown—a fellow engineer—envisioned a company where engineers could directly collaborate with customers, who were also engineers. This Engineer-to-Engineer concept aimed to identify customer needs accurately and design custom interconnect solutions to meet those needs.

Brad recognized that this approach could revolutionize the development process. By harnessing the combined expertise and capabilities of both parties, a tailored interconnect solution could be rapidly and effectively produced, surpassing conventional methods.

In 1993, shortly after conceiving this innovative approach, ATL Technology was born. Our mission was clear: to establish an engineering-centric company that facilitated direct collaboration between our customers' engineers and our own. By bypassing conventional purchasing methods, we prioritized personalized solutions that precisely matched customer requirements.

Our Transition to Full Medical Device Development

In 2005, ATL embarked on its journey of specializing in single-use medical devices. A decade later, in 2015, ATL Technology underwent a transformative shift, transitioning to comprehensive device development—an evolution attributed to our highly effective engineer-to-engineer approach.

Brad, our founder, affirms, "Our engineer-to-engineer approach, coupled with our meticulous product development process, has significantly benefited our customers. Over the years, we've partnered with top medical device OEMs, facilitating the introduction of unique and innovative products to the market."

He continues, "Our expertise has grown notably, particularly in areas like imaging, high-density interconnect, and use control. ATL has emerged as an industry leader in each of these spheres, including electro-surgical instruments. Rather than waiting for specifications, we proactively engage with engineers to understand their challenges, and then offer solutions."

This approach has unequivocally distinguished ATL from competitors, sidestepping conventional sales and marketing maneuvers in favor of direct engineer collaboration. It has also cultivated an intimate grasp of our customers' needs, enabling us to craft tailored solutions that adeptly address their precise challenges.

Where We Are Now

ATL’s client base now includes nine of the top ten medical device manufacturers worldwide, having established ourselves as a trusted partner in vital projects, and driving MedTech innovation through engineer collaboration, improving patients’ lives and shaping the medical device industry's future.

At ATL Technology, our commitment transcends mere transactional engagements. We endeavor to be the partner you can unequivocally rely on, providing steadfast support from the project's inception to the very last component's production. This enduring commitment is a key reason why 9 of the top 10 leading medical device companies in the world repeatedly entrust their projects to us.

Our customer-centric ethos drives us to assimilate your project as if it were our own, fostering innate transparency and mutual accountability. This alignment guarantees that we share the same objectives and jointly strive for shared success.
