Modern production process chains are made up of multiple links all operating in concert. Manufacturers of semi-finished products or manufacturing service providers play a key role in this chain. One such company is ATS Laser SAS in France. It specializes in cutting, bending and welding metal semi-finished components and is the largest of three companies united under the aegis of Holding Tournié. It has 86 employees and generates an annual turnover of 15 million EUR. The cornerstone of the group, ATS Laser is now looking at developing its own product range.
