Marposs Acquires Gage Maker Kern
The purchase by Marposs of Kern S.A.S. follows the recent acquisition of Control Gaging Inc. (Ann Arbor, Michigan), as well as the 2006 acquisition of Trace, a French manufacturer of leak testing machines used in assembly applications.
Marposs S.p.A. president, Stefano Possati, says that additional future acquisitions are likely to be made by the firm. “Our goal is growing in a solid and continued way both in our traditional and new markets,” says Possati. “Purchasing quality companies with products that are complementary to those of Marposs is a tool that we will continue using in addition to our strong activity in research and development inside the company.”
