LDC – which is owned by part-nationalised lender Lloyds – has made a minority investment in the business, which posted record sales of £16.4m in the financial year to April 2012.
ATG currently exports anti-ram, access control and high security vehicle barrier systems to more than 40 countries and has several high profile clients.
Its products have been installed in Horse Guards Parade in London, Heathrow Airport, Changi Airport in Singapore and Doha International Airport.
ATG said that it aims to capitalise on the rapid expansion in major infrastructure investment in emerging markets such as the Middle and Far East, South America and Africa.
Carl Wormald, head of LDC in the North West, said, “ATG Access is a strong example of the businesses that we are looking to back, given its status as an advanced manufacturer, buy and build potential and appetite for international expansion.”
“Following a record 2012 in terms of investment, we remain as committed as ever to supporting the North West’s ambitious management teams, despite the challenging trading environment, to expand their businesses and capitalise on the growth opportunities that the economy presents.”
LDS’s recent investments include TD Travel, Metronet, Keoghs and Bifold Group.
