Engineering consulting

ATN Hölzel GmbH has a track record as a reliable partner for comprehensive application technology, automation and robotics solutions. Our long-standing experience in implementing automation projects has taught us that getting our specialists involved early in the process shortens the time it takes to issue and award your tender as well as speeding up your planning stages.  

Capitalize on our engineering expertise to help identify the right technical solution

We have over 20 years’ experience in advising and above all supporting customers to make their projects a success. We’d like to do the same for you. Our engineering consultants have a wide variety of know-how, experience and tools to draw on. Our aim is always to find you the optimum solution and we are always ready for a new challenge, be it in exploratory discussions, workshops or complex engineering projects.

Our philosophy

ATN Engineering Consulting sees itself as a service provider with maximum customer focus. We don’t think in straight lines. We approach your project as an intensive dialogue, guided by your specific expectations regarding time, budget, risk, flexibility and other criteria that you have set. Having clarified and discussed the requirement, and working closely with potential system vendors, we develop recommendations for action and possible alternatives in a partially or fully agile project plan, whose scope and format is clearly coordinated as far as possible.
