LOUISVILLE, KY-Sypris Solutions Inc. has completed the sale of its Test & Measurement business to Tektronix for $39 million in cash. The proceeds of the sale will be used by Sypris to support the growth of its Aerospace & Defense segment, pay retirement debt and will be put to other uses. The Test & Measurement business of Sypris is a provider of calibration services, testing and component sourcing services, and specialty products.

“The completion of this transaction with Tektronix marks an important milestone for Sypris Solutions,” says Jeffrey T.

Gill continued, “We believe that the combination of our Test & Measurement business with Tektronix will result in exciting growth opportunities for our employees and customers.
