Bringing Technologies Together

July 17, 2018 (Norfolk, VA),
CIRS, Inc. proudly announced last November the acquisition of ATS Laboratories, Bridgeport, Connecticut. This merger brings together both company’s technologies, providing a new level of choice in ultrasonic tissue mimicking materials while maintaining the same level of quality and customer service that ATS and CIRS customers have come to expect from these companies.

ATS Laboratories, Incorporated was established in 1978 as a privately held corporation located in Bridgeport, Connecticut, USA. ATS designed and manufactured tissue-mimicking phantoms for the routine performance monitoring, training and in-process production testing of ultrasound imaging systems. Both company’s Ultrasound products are similar but using different tissue mimicking materials providing the best choice for all customers.

“The incorporation of ATS into CIRS has now been completed. The entire move from Bridgeport to our new facility in Norfolk, Virginia, is now fully integrated into the CIRS manufacturing processes. Some of the ATS employees have even joined our CIRS team to help in the technology and manufacturing transition” states Ted Lynch, Ultrasound Manager. “ATS products will now be readily available with little or no delay in filling customer orders.”
