Another acquisition for testing house

6 Jun 16 CET UK has acquired Chesterfield-based Omega Calibration Laboratories, its second acquisition of the past few weeks.

Omega provides calibration services including electrical, dimensional, temperature, pressure, testing and repairs.

Last month CET took over Doncaster-based Construction Testing Solutions (CTS), a materials testing business. CTS extended CET’s geographical reach in materials testing; Omega extends its niche revenue streams.

CET chief executive Bob Blunden said: “As part of our ongoing commitment to our customers, innovation and development is central to our proposition and acquiring Omega Calibration Laboratories was a natural fit which follows just weeks after our purchase of CTS. We’re constantly looking to strengthen our offer and providing a comprehensive service to our customers is central – the company was not only a good strategic fit but enables us to provide an added-value service. 

“Omega Calibration is a long-established company in Chesterfield and we will be working closely to integrate our teams and ensure a seamless transition into the CET group. The company already has a fantastic management team and we were impressed by the depth of expertise across the organisation, so we’re looking forward to incorporating the skills and capabilities of the company in line with our own growth plans, while continuing to offer an exceptional service to our customers.”
