Atema Partners Inc. Acquires OCD Labs

Atema Partners, Inc. has acquired OCD Labs, which provides custom wiring and infrastructure packaging for concert touring and fixed production. Both companies are based in Franklin, Tennessee.

Tom Atema Jr. launched Atema Partners in 2008; it is the parent company of AP Live, which provides audio visual solutions, including large format video and LED support, for corporate meetings and events, festivals, concerts, and exhibits worldwide. Headquartered in Franklin, Tennessee, Atema Partners and its family of companies also have additional offices in Las Vegas; Denver; Birmingham, Alabama; and La Vergne, Tennessee.

“We are excited to add the type of product and service offerings that OCD Labs provides,” says Atema Partners founder and CEO Tom Atema Jr. “If you’ve been part of any live production anywhere in the country in the past couple of years, you’ve seen some of OCD Labs’ best-in-class projects at work. As a relationship company, we are looking forward to continuing the established relationships that OCD Labs has cultivated among so many valued clients.”

OCD Labs was founded in 2005 by Jeff Nolte. In the acquisition, Nolte will serve as Director of OCD Labs.

“When we started OCD Labs, we wanted to focus on solving our clients’ wiring and case challenges with their touring and production gear,” says Nolte. “Everything we do is purpose-built to solve a very specific problem that a client has. That brand mission aligns perfectly with the Atema Partners philosophy of serving clients, so this is an ideal fit.”
