In March of 1986, ATI brand was sold to, and became a subsidiary of, Snap-on Tools Incorporated.


When defence budgets were drastically reduced in the early 1990s, ATI terminated all aerospace missile component work to concentrate solely on the core commercial tools business. In keeping with this focus, we changed our company name to ATI Tools, Inc. and kept that name until January 1, 1996, when we became ATI Tools Division, Snap-on Tools Company.
