ATEQ – 1 international Group – 3 business activities
ATEQ is a measurement solutions provider with over 40 years of experience providing accurate, reliable, and customizable instruments to thousands of manufacturers in various industries all over the world. What unifies them is their need for a superb quality assurance process, of which a quality control protocol is a key feature.
Founder, Jacques Mouchet, was inspired to start the business in 1975 because he had a vision to replace traditional production line leak detection methods like water testing with testers that were computerized, automated, and compliant with international standards. This was ATEQ’s original leak and flow tester division. ATEQ was built with the vision to service customers throughout the world with our own local engineers and technicians. This vision made us a global leader in industrial testing equipment.
Today, the global leader in measurement solutions has 26 wholly owned subsidiaries, and has sold over 500,000 instruments across three divisions: the leak/flow tester division, the aviation division, and the TPMS (tire-pressure monitoring system) division. Its instruments are used in a variety of applications, including medical devices, industrial equipment, automotive, electronic, appliances, and aeronautic.
ATEQ operates under the three core values of passion, perseverance, and innovation, as well as its global mission statement: “To be a passionate global leader of innovative measurement solutions by providing premium testing equipment and unsurpassed services to valued customers and partners.” ATEQ is different from many of our competitors because not only are our instruments more precise, we have locations in 37 countries all over the world to keep our sales and service processes efficient. Many manufacturing companies operate globally with engineers in one country, manufacturing plants in another and decision makers in another – by ATEQ having so many locations worldwide, this gives customers a comforting global network of ATEQ contacts who can speak their native language and address issues locally to fit their needs from start to finish. Over the last few years, ATEQ’s business has grown significantly. The $150 million-dollar manufacturer, which serves thousands of customers like BMW, Sony, L’Oreal, General Motors, Renault-Nissan, Airbus, Bosch, and Valeo, has branched out both in terms of its client reach as well as its physical locations.
45 years later, ATEQ continues to commit to the quality of its products at every stage, from design to delivery, according to industry standards. If your business requires the market credibility and peace of mind that come with having measurement testing streamlined into its production process or QA facilities, ATEQ is the solution.

ATEQ began in 1975 with developing, designing, and manufacturing leak testers for industrial manufacturing industries including automotive, medical, electronics, appliances, and packaging. In product development laboratories and production lines, any small part defect can cause the part to not meet its airtightness requirements – this is where leak testing for quality control comes into play. For example, for a smartphone that claims to be waterproof, it is necessary to thoroughly test the phone to make sure no water will be able to enter any of the phone’s openings.
After many successful years in the leak testing industry, ATEQ decided in 2007 to broaden its pressure testing technologies into the automotive world based on the new rising mandated technology of tire pressure sensors. ATEQ TPMS developed a range of TPM (Tire Pressure Monitoring) sensor testing tools. These tools are used by both assembly lines, and tire repair shops to activate and program sensors, read their battery life, and determine the tire’s pressure and temperature.
ATEQ didn’t stop at the automotive industry. In 2008, ATEQ added another new division to the group, ATEQ Aviation, making ATEQ a worldwide manufacturer
of aviation test equipment for all types of aircraft in hangars, tarmacs, or labs including: automated Pitot-static (ADSE) testers, and adaptors, loop/bonding resistance testers and battery chargers/analyzers.
