Reflecting on 2019

ATC was founded in 1979, and as we celebrate our 40thyear, we are now Europe’s leading Data Centre, Logistics, and White Glove service provider, counting the world’s leading technology customers amongst our clients.

It has been an exciting journey, and all the while, we have been guided by our core values: loving our customers, earning their trust, and being innovative. Our 40thyear has seen many significant highlights that will make this year one to remember.

 

Frankfurt Expansion

This time last year, we announced that we would be expanding our presence into Frankfurt to further serve our customers in the data centre markets across Europe.

In November, I had the privilege to present ATC’s story of growth in Frankfurt at the Hessen – Ireland Business Day, which was hosted in Dublin by Hessen Trade and Invest. We are delighted to say that our expansion into Frankfurt has been a great success and a critical step towards our strategic objective of expanding our European footprint.

Frankfurt is a vital part of our network, home to an expanding local team, and servicing key clients. We look forward to further developments in 2020.

 

ATC Wins ILTA Safety Award

Fast forward to June, and we were honoured to be awarded the safety award by ILTA. This award highlights our commitment to maintaining world-class safety management systems under Adrian’s leadership. Safety is everyone’s concern, and this award also recognises the professionalism of all our teams who implement control measures and monitoring systems to ensure operational safety each and every day.

Achieving such a prestigious award, sponsored by the RSA, validates our safety management endeavours and assures our customers that our commitment to safety excellence is unwavering.

 

ATC Turns 40

In October, ATC officially turned 40, and we were truly honoured to have our founders, Alan and Patricia Young, recognised by their industry peers for their 40 years in business at the Fleet Transport awards which happened to fall on the week of our birthday. Alan’s career has spanned three significant phases in computing: from mainframes, through personal computers, and now to cloud computing and the Internet of Things (IoT).

We couldn’t have made it this far without their true dedication and commitment to providing a safe and happy environment for staff and delivering a superior service to clients.

Fleet.ie Online Award

Over the past couple of years, ATC has invested time in improving our online presence to fit the modern world of communication.

To be recognised for such an award means the world to us as we value online communication so much and enjoy sharing our updates and stories with you all here on our website and through our leading social network LinkedIn.

Safeguarding Our Environment

We care deeply as a company about our environment, which is why we continue to invest in the latest technologies to ensure that our trucks are equipped with the most modern Euro low Emission Engines.

We can’t wait for our new Mercedes Actros trucks, with the latest engine technology, to hit the road in 2020!

To conclude, 2019 has been an exceptional and memorable year for the whole team here at ATC. As Alan says, “It has been a fantastic journey, and there are many miles of road left, here’s to the next 40 years.”
