Germany-based ATN Hoelzel LP will invest $6 million to expand its operations in Chattanooga with plans to create 100 new jobs in Hamilton County, Tennessee.
The company plans to relocate its current Hamilton County facility to an existing 55,000-square-foot facility in Chattanooga. The company will retrofit the existing space to include 15,000 square feet of office space as well as other upgrades at the facility. The new operations will function as the company’s North American headquarters and manufacturing facility.

The company’s customers include premium automotive OEMs that fully rely on ATN’s services, equipment and turnkey solutions.
“ATN is thrilled to announce our newly expanded manufacturing facility in Chattanooga. With the support of both the city and state we will be able to attract new talent in the region and create more highly skilled and compensated jobs to drive the manufacturing landscape of our hometown forward. Our expertise in dispensing quality robotic solutions has been recognized by most car manufacturers across North America, who are using our systems in all production areas for their ICE and electric vehicle production lines. The U.S. manufacturing facility has become our second largest plant worldwide and perfectly complements our German Production and Services offered at the headquarters in Saxony, Germany,” ATN Hoelzel COO Thomas Brandler explained.
