COMMERCIALISED R&D

    ATC was originally called Approtech Corp. Ltd. when the company was first founded in 1982.  ATC main objective at the time was to develop new products, processes, and machinery for commercialisation purposes using its own capacity and resources.  Over the years, ATC lent its facilities and resources to serve clients who wanted to conduct R&D activities and run pilot plant projects in Thailand.  These developments led ATC to devise and operate pilot scale production projects and monitor and test local produce, seafood, and insects for food and pharmaceutical purposes.  Nowadays, ATC leads, conducts, coordinates, and advise on R&D projects including testing and development for new products, processes, machinery, and pilot plants at client facilities, research institutes, or university laboratories.

    Since 1995, ATC has taken over from Approtech and has thrived to continue the R&D development and commercialisation work undertaken by the former company.  Today, ATC range of services in commercialised R&D includes the following:
  • Conduct New Product Research and Development
  • Coordinate R&D Project between Foreign Donors and Local Institutes
  • Design, Locate, Test, and Monitor Pilot Plants and Experimental Crops
  • Implement Operating Cost Reduction Measures and Quality Control Procedures
