A belated Happy New Year to all of our valued customers and we hope you all enjoyed the break over Christmas….It’s been a hectic start to the new year for us and things are only set to get busier thanks to the exciting times ahead.
Firstly, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your continued custom and support during last year. 2015 saw one of ATi’s most successful year’s to date, thanks to our continued investment into our groundbreaking and innovative range of network monitors and the three new frameworks we won with United Utilities, Severn Trent Water and Yorkshire Water. Sales and profits record growth, whilst we also saw a 35% increase in staff within the UK team, with a further increase planned over the next 12 months.
As we begin 2016, we enter a new and exciting chapter, another one of increased activity and rapid growth. However, throughout this period of expansion, providing customers with our award winning customer service remains our priority. Due to this commitment, we will be investing in the level of care we offer our customers by employing additional dedicated staff in our Service and After Sales departments.
The NephNet and ChlorNet are continuing to fly off the shelves following their exceptional success in network monitoring. We have just invested thousands into a new product range which we will be launching later this year, which will include the most up to date technology, smart monitoring and will be battery powered. We are extremely excited to introduce this new range to our customers, so watch this space!
Our completely revamped chemistry module system has also given our customers even more reliability and confidence in key measurements. The most important new feature is the Auto Check feature on the Q46 ammonia that verifies the monitor performance daily.
The success of our new Intrinsically Safe Gas Detection Range, the F12, into Europe has opened up new and exciting opportunities in industries other than the water industry now that it is fully certified by ATEX. Over the next 12 months we will be expanding our business into the gas market and opening up a specific gas division within ATi, with plans to make this as successful as our water market.
ATi has doubled its business each year for the last 2 years, and our aim is to continue this rapid growth whilst maintaining a 5 star service to customers. At ATi we strive to be more than a company that just supplies instrumentation, but a company that changes the way customers view the supply of monitoring equipment. Expert knowledge of the industry, high-quality equipment and our award winning customer service and support, are key to our success.
Once again, we would like to thank all our customers and staff for their support during 2015 and we look forward to all the new challenges the next year will bring. In the meantime, we wish you all good health, further prosperity and a very happy 2016!
