Trescal has acquired US-based calibration services provider, Exphil Calibration Labs.
The transaction consolidates Trescal’s geographical footprint and technical coverage in the US. This acquisition has been completed with the support of Ardian, its majority shareholder.
Founded in 1977, Exphil is a one-stop-shop A2LA accredited laboratory with strong technical skills in electrical DC/Low Frequency. Exphil employs 17 people, generates a turnover of $2 million and is mostly active in the aeronautics sector.
Commenting on the news, Guillaume Caroit, Trescal Deputy CEO, said: “This new acquisition is fully consistent with our strategy of strengthening our network in North America to better address national tenders and serve our large customers. We still have to penetrate 5 states in the USA.”
This acquisition will bring Trescal’s network in the USA to sixteen accredited calibration laboratories in thirteen states with over 400 employees. It is the eighteenth acquisition since the change of ownership to Ardian in July 2013.
