Our Story

In 1999, the company's pioneers and investors foresaw an opportunity: the demand for mobile electronic communications accessories, especially of safe, lightweight lithium-ion polymer batteries, was set to take off. After carefully weighing prospects, they resolved to enter the lithium-ion business. This attempt is what made this lifelong Chinese dream of joining the global lithium-ion league possible.

In that same year, ATL was established in Hong Kong.

ATL's founding entrepreneurs licensed U.S. Bellcore Labs' patented technology for lithium-ion polymer battery right away, while at the same time, burying themselves in research and development. ATL eventually became the only company to successfully deploy the technology for mass production. With its name firmly established, ATL attracted orders from numerous international consumer brand leaders.

From a small Dongguan manufacturer, ATL grew steadily into a reputable lithium-ion power house. In 2005, a world-renowned electronic components group acquired ATL, turning it into a wholly owned subsidiary. After the acquisition, the founders chose to remain with the company. Since then, ATL's returns had grown from tens of millions of dollars to doubling every year. As its reputation grew, the company continued to forge ahead towards new heights.

By 2008, ATL had to expand to meet a substantial increase in demand for its products. ATL gradually moved its base from Dongguan in Guangdong, to Ningde in Fujian, in order to launch an R&D arm and to increase production capacity. With annual sales exceeding two billion US dollars, ATL has emerged as the world's number one lithium-ion polymer battery supplier, specializing in battery materials, batteries, packaging and system integration technologies. Today, our batteries are fully integrated into the lives of people everywhere, along with our partners' electronic products and devices. With still a long road ahead, ATL will continue to move forward, always remaining faithful to our core values.
