Trescal strengthens its life science expertise by acquiring Classic Technology in Ireland and CATLab in the United States

Trescal, the global leader in calibration services, announced the acquisition of Classic Technology Ltd in Naas, Republic of Ireland, and CATLab in Virginia and North Carolina, USA. These two companies add €6 million in total sales. They are the 34th and 35th since OMERS invested in April 2018.

The addition of Classic Technology allows Trescal to establish its presence in the Republic of Ireland, the 27th country for the Group. Established in 1997, Classic Technology is one of the largest Irish calibration companies. It specialises in life sciences, especially the pharmaceutical and medical device industries.

Founded in 1989, CATLab also specialises in the life science sector and offers accreditations in six domains including pressure, vacuum, temperature, humidity and flow. With the addition of its two laboratories, Trescal will now operate from five locations in Virginia and North Carolina, extending its geographic coverage in the American Southeast.

Guillaume Caroit, Trescal CEO: “These acquisitions illustrate our will to develop our presence in the life science sector. We plan to reach 30% of our turnover in this industry by year end. We are also proud to penetrate the Republic of Ireland, our 20th new country since 2008.”
