For the proposed solutions we ensure the best ratio between investment and quality, maximum energy efficiency, and environmental friendliness – those are our standards, which we always abide by. Attention and taking care of our customers does not end with the finished project, it extends to our high-quality maintenance service, partner relationship, and care for spare parts, as well as with upgrades and improvements of both hardware and software components.


The company’s beginnings date back to 1989, when we founded ATES in collaboration with our coworkers from the automation section, who were responsible for maintenance at the company Impol. ATES was established as a partner company of Impol, to provide them with engineering services in automation and industrial processes computerization, technical and application support for the embedded systems, and equipment maintenance.

So our core senior coworkers have extensive experience and references since 1982. The year 1994 marked a turning point for us, as new coworkers were hired and we began offering our services outside the Impol’s business system. Even though our current activities significantly exceed the initial objectives, the Impol business group remains our largest and most important trading partner. In 2004, we moved into a new office and today we employ 15 coworkers. The scope of the company’s business is growing and today ATES is one of the leading Slovenian companies in automation and control of production processes in the aluminum and metal processing industry.
