ATech Automotive Technology
ATech Training, Inc. was founded in 1984 by individuals who were interested in the quality of automotive training programs in the United States. They believed they could make a difference by developing products which would aid instructors in implementing a hands-on approach to teaching and learning the skills of automotive diagnosis and repair. Fred Hines joined the company in 1986 as V.P. of Research and Development then went on to become the sole owner in 1997. From that point, he and CEO Laura Lyons, provided the vision and direction of the company. With that vision, ATech has become a leader in the design and development of world-class trainers and courseware for the Automotive OEM, Secondary Education, Community College, Military and Technical School markets.
