The road to VoiceCollect

The short, long history of the company

Foundation

In 1946, Wolfgang Assmann founded W. Assmann GmbH. He developed and sold many things such as telephones, dictation machines and multi-channel recorders.

In 1949, the company moved to Justus-von-Liebig-Straße in Bad Homburg v. d. Höhe (Hesse / Germany), where VoiceCollect is still headquartered today.

In the 1970s, W. Assman GmbH was renamed as ATIS after reaching markets internationally.

1958

1971

Merger

A long-time competitor of ATIS was UHER Werke München, which also produced high-quality tape recorders. After the world-renowned traditional brand ran into financial difficulties, ATIS took over UHER in 1971. The UHER brand name continued to exist until the 1990s.

Repositioning

ATIS continued to develop UHER’s tape technology further, especially for professional use in government agencies, airports and other security-relevant areas.

Large devices such as the MS 200, MS300, MS 548 and MS 600 multichannel recorders bore the ATIS brand name.

1989

Digital age

In 1985, ATIS UHER SA was founded in Fontaines (Switzerland) as another manufacturing site. Here, the first digital ATIS recorders were manufactured, for example the models IR 30, MDR 30 and MDR 2000. The development of the devices continued to lie with ATIS in Germany.

From 2005, the IR 44 and MDx series recorders were released under the Voice Collect brand. In 2018, ATIS discontinued series production, as the increasing software orientation of the products reduced the vertical range of manufacture.

New brand

 VoiceCollect GmbH was founded in 2018. While ATIS Systems GmbH specialized in IT solutions for law enforcement agencies, VoiceCollect GmbH took over the traditional business with professional multi-channel recording systems.

Since then, the development, production and configuration of the high-end products continues at the Bad Homburg headquarters.
