PARIS Trescal, an international specialist in calibration services, acquired General Calibration Inc. based in Boonton, N.J.

GenCal is an ISO 17025 A2LA accredited one-stop-shop laboratory and employs 22 people for an annual turnover of about $3 million.

The 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.

“We are very happy to welcome General Calibration within Trescal group," Guillaume Caroit, general secretary of Trescal Group, said. "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.”

The acquisition is the tenth build-up following Ardian’s take over of Trescal in July 2013, and the fourth in the United States in 2014.
