Transcat, Inc. (Nasdaq: TRNS) (“Transcat”), a leading distributor of professional grade handheld test and measurement instruments and accredited provider of calibration, repair and weighing system services, announced today that the Company has been named by Stahlwille, world-renowned German manufacturer of handtools and specialist for torquing technology, as the only official U.S. Factory Authorized Calibration and Repair Center.

The Stahlwille-Transcat partnership will enrich the current torque capabilities of Transcat’s Calibration and Repair Services.

Charles P. Hadeed, President, CEO and COO of Transcat, stated, “We are pleased to partner with Stahlwille as their US Factory Authorized Calibration and Repair Center. This will greatly complement our growing wind business and will enhance our current torque service offerings to all our customers.”
