The acquisition has been completed thanks to the support of its majority shareholder, ARDIAN, the premium independent private investment company, formerly known as AXA Private Equity.
With this transaction, Trescal now takes another major step forward in its development in the US calibration market and reinforces its position as a leading global provider of calibration services through its global network of over 65 owned calibration laboratories. This acquisition is the third since the change of ownership to ARDIAN in July 2013.
Guillaume Caroit, general secretary, Trescal Group, said: ”We are very pleased with this acquisition; the quality of SE Laboratories’ management and the company’s strong technical skills were key in our decision. With the help of ARDIAN, we will keep on investing in performing calibration companies in the United States.”
Anil Singh, founder and CEO of SE Laboratories, comments: “After 35 years in business, I am delighted that SE Laboratories has become a part of the Trescal organization. The merger will expand Trescal’s capabilities in the United States and increase the know-how of both companies worldwide.
