Alliance Technical Laboratories Ltd was formed by the merging of two laboratories (Alliance Technical Ltd and Gooch Garforth) in 2005. The newly formed ATL took residence in our current home in Needham Market.

In 2012 Alliance Technical Laboratories Ltd became part of a larger group of companies when it was purchased by Harlow Agricultural Merchants Ltd. Since 2012 ATL has continued to grow in size every year and now offers more services to our customers than ever before.
