Transcat Significantly Expands Canadian Presence With Acquisition Of Cal-Matrix Metrology Inc.

Transcat, Inc. (NASDAQ: TRNS) (“Transcat” or the “Company”), a leading distributor of professional grade handheld test, measurement and control instruments and accredited provider of calibration, repair, inspection and other compliance services, announced today that it has acquired Cal-Matrix Metrology Inc. (“Cal-Matrix”), a leading Canadian provider of commercial and accredited calibrations and coordinate measurement inspection services. Headquartered in Burlington (Greater Toronto Area), the acquisition greatly expands Transcat’s presence in Southern Ontario, the largest market in Canada, and adds a lab in Montreal, Quebec.

Charles P. Hadeed, Chief Executive Officer of Transcat, commented, “We continue on our strategy of growing our Service segment both organically and through acquisitions. This acquisition gives us a significant presence in Canada’s ‘Golden Horseshoe’ area, which includes Hamilton, Burlington and Toronto. Cal-Matrix’s business philosophy and corporate culture aligns well with ours, and we are proud to have them join the Transcat team.”

Cal-Matrix offers calibration services to clients who require calibration of their RF, DC low frequency, optics, mechanical, torque and pressure measurement equipment. Cal-Matrix maintains a comprehensive ISO/IEC-17025-2005 certified scope for calibration and coordinate measurement inspection.

Lee Rudow, President and Chief Operating Officer of Transcat, added, “Cal-Matrix has an extensive and stable portfolio of first-tier corporate clients with many of these clients having been associated with Cal-Matrix for many years. In order to continue this superior level of customer service, Cal-Matrix’s management team and its nearly 30 employees have been retained by Transcat.”

The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
