Trescal announces the acquisition of Gefran's metrology assets and the acquisition of Master Metrology Inc. These companies, located respectively in Provaglio d'Iseo (Italy) and Towson (Maryland, USA) are accredited Accredia and A2LA.
Master Metrology has a turnover of $2 million and employs 16 people, including 7 technicians. This acquisition complements Trescal's geographical coverage in the United States and enriches its technical offering, particularly in the dimensional and torque areas.
The Gefran metrology laboratory has a turnover of around 800k euros and employs 5 people, including 4 technicians. This laboratory will be merged with Trescal's in Brescia. This acquisition enriches Trescal's technical offering of metrological services in the fields of humidity, temperature and climatic enclosures, in the laboratory or on site. Both transactions were completed with the support of its majority shareholder Ardian, the leading private and independent investment firm.
These are the fifth and sixth acquisitions in less than a year since Ardian acquired Trescal in July 2013. Guillaume Caroit, General Secretary of the Trescal Group, said: "These two new acquisitions are fully in line with our development strategy, both in the Americas where we are aiming for leadership within two years, and in Europe where we want to offer an ever-widening technical offer to our customers. We hope to complete two to three additional acquisitions by the end of the year. Ray Wood, Founder and President of Master Metrology: "Master Metrology is one of the fastest growing companies contributing to the rebirth of Maryland's industrial sector. This transaction will strengthen our leading position in our market and allow us to expand our technical skills, our range of services and our international footprint. Thibault Basquin, Managing Director Mid Cap Buyout at Ardian, adds: "As recently announced, Trescal is pursuing its ambitious policy of international external growth. The momentum is excellent and enjoys close collaboration between the Ardian and Trescal teams. »
