Houston, TX – November 21, 2023 – Pelican Energy Partners (“Pelican”) is pleased to announce that it has acquired Spring ATG, LLC (“Springs ATG”) from Machine Build Technologies. In conjunction with the transaction, Springs ATG will be rebranded as Advanced Technology Group (“ATG” or the “Company”). ATG is based in Westminster, Colorado and is a manufacturer of containment solutions, including gloveboxes, for the nuclear industry. The Company’s containment solutions are used in multiple applications to facilitate life extension of nuclear power plants across North America, as well as enabling the nascent SMR/Advanced Reactor industry.
With the Pelican investment, the business unit is now a standalone enterprise and singularly focused on designing and building containment systems. Additionally, Pelican has made a cash investment in ATG which will fund the company’s plan to double its capacity. The existing management team has participated alongside Pelican in this growth equity investment, demonstrating their long-term commitment to manage and grow the business. This investment positions ATG to expand its market penetration and service offering in response to growing customer demand. Paul Ernster of Pelican stated: “We are excited to partner with the ATG team and provide growth capital to the business. We expect ATG to continue to build upon their impressive operational success and attack the growing nuclear market.”
Kevin Oliver, president of ATG stated, “We are thrilled to partner with Pelican Energy Partners. They have a unique focus of investing in the nuclear sector and have been very enthusiastic about supporting our existing growth plan. Our business is in high growth mode and now we have all the financial resources we need to accomplish our goals.”
