These three companies add €16 million in total sales. Acquisitions since OMERS invested now total 42.

Established in 1962, Cincinnati Precision Instruments provides calibration services in nine accredited domains, with strong capabilities in humidity, hardness and pressure. CPI mainly serves the automotive and aerospace industries. This acquisition allows Trescal to extend its geographic coverage to southern Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky.

CRT Cleanroom-Technology operates two laboratories in Alsdorf, Germany, and Stein, Switzerland, to provide qualification and calibration services for cleanroom operators. This acquisition strengthens Trescal’s existing life sciences expertise in Central Europe. CRT Cleanroom-Technology offers extensive capabilities in airborne particle counters, microbial air samplers, thermal process qualification and flow visualization to pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical clients.

Founded in 1989, EIA comprises two accredited laboratories in Lisbon and Porto, serving mainly the life science and food and beverage industries. EIA’s comprehensive set of accreditations expands Trescal’s calibration, testing and legal metrology scopes in the Iberian peninsula. With this acquisition, Trescal becomes the leading provider of calibration and qualification services in Portugal.

“These acquisitions embody our will to further develop our services for life science and food and beverage clients." Guillaume Caroit, Trescal CEO says, "Together, these industries will represent close to 25% of our sales by the end of 2022.”
