In a nut shell they were bought out by Serrotta in '94, moved location and finally shut in 2000.
A fair bit of info can be found on fatcogs, this thread is a good start.

gotta disagree there. serrotta didnt really"buy them out" they joined forces with serrotta (they also left serrotta a few years later).

I've got about 15pages worth of potted FAT history from wendyl. theres no 1 reason why FAT closed shop (yes they choose to close & didnt go bust!), just a series of reasons spread out over the years.

FAT is still badly missed.

I've learnt something..always thought Serrotta bought them out.
