US technology company Repairify has acquired Automotive Training Group (ATG), which offers in-person and virtual classes internationally. The deal is the 15th acquisition for Repairify, and parent company Kinderhook’s 171st automotive-related transaction. Financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
Repairify said ATG presents technical courses in an “understandable and interesting manner that challenges even the most experienced technicians”. The curriculum is developed with a diagnostic approach, combining OEM support information with real-world technician experience, using actual case studies where possible.
“ATG is known across the automotive technical training world for the superior quality of its curriculum and trainers, and we believe they are representative of the excellence we strive for every day,” said Cris Hollingsworth, President of Repairify. “As we continue our growth trajectory, building our training and development muscle to benefit customers and our large network of technicians will be a key success factor.”
Paul Cifelli, Managing Director of Kinderhook, said “Repairify is excited to offer a best-in-class training solution to its customers and its network of 16,000 technicians. Repairify is eager to welcome ATG and Tim Flannery [CEO of ATG] to the Repairify family.”
“ATG is thrilled to be joining the Repairify family of brands, and we look forward to becoming a global centre of excellence,” said Flannery. “We are confident our automotive training expertise will significantly advance Repairify’s goal of becoming a one-stop resource in the aftermarket.”
