ATS Expands Life Sciences Capabilities and Infrastructure with the Addition of Facilities in Prague

(Cambridge, Ontario – 12 April, 2024) ATS Life Sciences Systems (LSS), headquartered in Cambridge, Ontario, Canada, is pleased to welcome the team at the Process Automation Solutions location in Prague, Czechia, into the LSS fold. In order to meet growing demand and to better provide local service, the team will now specialize in life sciences automation, adding capacity to the facilities in Munich and Sankt Georgen, Germany.

Since 1999, Process Automation (PA) Solutions in Prague has been providing high-quality automation solutions for local manufacturers spanning multiple industry segments from Tier 1 automotive to industrial electronics. Due to significant growth in automation demand from European MedTech and Pharma segments, the Prague group is joining the ATS Life Sciences Systems (LSS) Europe division to add capacity.

The addition of the Prague group’s capabilities will enable ATS LSS Europe to expand production and engineering capacities in Europe, and provide a broader portfolio of solutions to meet European manufacturers’ needs in high mix/low volume manufacturing as well as solutions requiring a high level of flexibility.

“Our mission is solely focused on applying automation to solve manufacturing problems and support our customers to reduce their time to market. On behalf of ATS Life Sciences Systems Europe, I am pleased to combine forces with the Process Automation Solutions team based in Prague,” commented Ulrich Frickmann, Vice President, ATS Life Sciences Systems Europe.

Pavel Srna will remain as Managing Director. Having managed three startups in the last seven years, he sees this as another professional challenge. “I’m already looking forward to it. Over the past few years, there has been stable growth in the life sciences and pharmacy segment, so I am very happy that this change is coming for us at this time. The team here sees it as an opportunity for professional growth and to be part of cutting-edge projects,” Pavel said.

The new location in Central Europe will benefit customers both in terms of location and in terms of smart solutions for production assembly lines. The Prague team will draw inspiration from their past work and be able to apply it in the LSS segment.
