Atema Partners, Inc. has acquired OCD Labs, the forerunner in custom wiring and infrastructure packaging for concert touring and fixed production. Both companies are based in Franklin, 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-inclass projects at work,” he says. “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.”

OCD Labs features its custom trademarked LiteFly® racking and case systems to clients from every music and production genre. Much of their business comes through their online store at
