CAMBRIDGE, ON - ATS Automation Tooling Systems Inc. (TSX: ATA) ("ATS" or the "Company") today announced it has received an Order Booking from a global automotive manufacturer for a fully automated battery assembly system.
The total enterprise program is valued at approximately CAD $80 million, $7.6 million of which was received and recorded in Order Bookings for the first quarter of fiscal 2019. The full Order Bookings include design, build, installation and post-delivery support, including training, for a turnkey battery assembly system.
