Trescal acquires GenCal in New Jersey (USA)
Based in Boonton, New Jersey, General Calibration Inc. (GenCal) is an ISO 17025 A2LA accredited one-stop-shop laboratory and employs 22 people for an annual turnover of ~3 M$.
This acquisition allows Trescal to expand its footprint in the American market, strengthening its presence in the North East. It also reinforces its technical skills, particularly in electrical High Voltage calibration. GenCal’s management team will remain unchanged.
Guillaume Caroit, General Secretary of Trescal Group, said: “We are very happy to welcome General Calibration within Trescal group. This acquisition shows our strong commitment to reinforce Trescal presence in the US. We aim at continuing at the same pace our acquisition strategy in North America in 2015.”
