Royal Seal of Approval for ATS

ATS has been granted a Royal Warrant by Her Majesty The Queen in recognition of their supply of digital guide services.

Royal Warrants of Appointment are a mark of recognition to those who supply goods or services to the households of Her Majesty The Queen, His Royal Highness The Late Duke of Edinburgh or His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales.

To be able to display the Royal Arms is an honour afforded only to Royal Warrant holders – who are united by a commitment to the highest standards of service, quality and excellence.

Founder & Chairman Mike Howie, who started the company in 1994, commented “It is a real honour to be the recipient of this highly esteemed award. ATS is among just over 800 Royal Warrant holders whose work has been acknowledged at the highest level. We’ve always been driven by a commitment to the highest standards of service, quality and excellence, and it is a source of great pride that ATS has received the Royal Warrant”.

The Hampshire-based company provides audio and multimedia guide services to some of the world’s best known cultural and visitor attractions and over 5 million visitors enjoy an ATS tour experience each year.

Managing Director Spencer Clark, recognised the strong partnership that has brought ATS to this point. “The relationship that we have built with the Royal Household began some 17 years ago. Today, the Company provide thousands of digital visitor guides, entertaining tourists with unique experiences that bring to life the rich historic fabric of world-renowned heritage sites and attractions. This public recognition is a testament to the commitment and hard work of the entire team to deliver outstanding customer service to all of our clients”.
