Trescal today announces the acquisition of A+ Métrologie, a subsidiary of the Apave Group, a major player on the French test and measurement market.
Founded in 2000, A+ Métrologie has 14 multi-disciplined calibration laboratories spread across France employing 320 people (of which 250 engineers and technicians) and achieved a turnover of € 27 million in 2016.

Trescal will be able to rely on the skills and professionalism of its 320 new employees. "declares Van Phuc Lê, President of Apave Development and Vice President of Apave
