A.T.E. was founded as a part of India’s freedom movement. The idea – to sell high quality German textile machinery in India to challenge the prevailing British monopoly in the field. This endeavour helped in the modernisation and growth of the Indian textile industry, which now holds a strong position in the world. A.T.E. today is recognised as a leader in textile engineering in India, offering end to end solutions across the textile value chain.
A.T.E. also diversified into the fields of flow technology and print and packaging equipment in the 1970s, thus building-up expertise in diverse fields.
In the 2000s, a new generation of management took over the reins at A.T.E. The strategies going forward was to build on the businesses A.T.E had been in, but also go further in achieving social objectives. Well before “green” became a buzzword, A.T.E. decided to build up environmental businesses.
