We are also very pleased that our ADC employees are enjoying working at this facility, which was completed with their safety, comfort, and well-being in mind.”

The ADC is a world-class R&D facility and the largest TechCenter of its kind in India, encompassing 20,000 square meters of floor space, containing 17 fully automated plating lines and 39 high-end laboratories outfitted with state-of-the-art equipment. The ADC serves as a global hub for Atotech’s development, testing and qualification of some of the most innovative and sustainable products in the surface finishing industry. Atotech’s customers from around the world will benefit from this investment through faster product cycle times and a dedicated focus on delivering and supporting some of the most comprehensive surface finishing solutions in the industry.
