Calabasas, CA, June 9-National Technical Systems Inc. (NTS), provider of engineering services, has completed its acquisition of Elliott Laboratories Inc., a San Francisco Bay-area electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), product safety and wireless regulatory testing laboratory with two full-service facilities. The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

The addition of Elliott to the NTS organization creates one of the largest independent providers of EMC design, test and evaluation services in North America. NTS now has eight EMC locations coast-to-coast. Additionally, NTS provides EMC services from its laboratory in Munich, Germany.

“Elliott Laboratories is a natural fit for NTS,” states William McGinnis, president and CEO of NTS. “This is a very strategic move for NTS as it allows us to service our customers locally and gives us access to a significant market. We are now positioned to offer all of our additional services locally to the Bay area. This acquisition further strengthens and expands our existing engineering and evaluation capabilities, in line with our growth strategy to enhance local services and increase our domestic capacity.”
