Element Metech , the calibration and metrology division of Exova, the global testing, calibration and advisory services provider, has acquired GSMobile Calibration of the Czech Republic. The move will facilitate growth of the Element Metech business into a range of new sectors in Eastern Europe.
GSMobile Calibration is an ISO 17025 accredited calibration service provider specialising in RF and Microwave, supporting the telecoms and electronics sectors within the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Ukraine, Romania and Poland. The business brings expertise which will strengthen and broaden the capabilities of Element Metech within these markets and creates a platform for the company's ambitious expansion plans.
The acquisition gives Element Metech access to additional skills and technologies including a unique implant model which enables the delivery of calibration services within the customers' own premises. It also represents significant expansion of the Element Metech footprint and follows on from other strategic acquisitions earlier this year in Sweden.
Growth in demand for calibration within the telecoms and electronics industries is being seen across the world, while this move also allows Element Metech to diversify further into the aerospace, automotive transportation and defence sectors within Central and Eastern Europe. The acquisition will sit alongside the existing Exova operation within the Czech Republic which offers specialist materials testing services to the aerospace industry.
Hans Åberg, managing director of Element Metech , comments: "GSMobile Calibration sits well in the portfolio of technically demanding services that Element Metech already provides within RF and Microwave calibration and metrology. The operation complements our level of quality and innovation, and creates a one stop shop for new and existing customers in Eastern Europe.
"The acquisition of GSMobile Calibration confirms our commitment to the continued extension of our geographical footprint through strategic acquisitions in growth markets".
GSMobile Calibration was established in 2004 by founder, Drew Nimmo and two business partners and was the first UKAS (now CAI) accredited facility for RF and Microwave measurement in the Czech Republic.
We welcome new and existing GSMobile Calibration customers to Element Metech , and the GSMobile skilled staff to join the Element Metech team. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
