TT agrees to acquire Torotel, a US-based power and electromagnetic manufacturer.
TT Electronics, a global provider of engineered electronics for performance critical applications, today announces it has agreed to acquire Torotel, a US-based designer and manufacturer of high-reliability power and electromagnetic assemblies and components for the aerospace and defense markets. The acquisition is one of several, recent demonstrations of TT’s commitment to continued investment in power management devices for the aerospace and defense market.
Torotel specializes in the custom design, manufacture and sale of a wide variety of precision magnetic components including electro-mechanical assemblies, high voltage transformers, dry-type transformers, toroidal coils, inductors reactors and chokes for use in equipment such as aircraft navigational equipment, digital control devices, medical equipment, avionics equipment, down-hole drilling, conventional missile guidance systems, and other defense and commercial aerospace applications.
TT has agreed to acquire Torotel for $43.4 million. The acquisition is subject to approval by Torotel’s shareholders and US regulatory conditions and is expected to close in Q4 2020, at which point the business will be fully integrated into TT as a wholly-owned subsidiary.
The acquisition will broaden TT’s power electronics capabilities and expanding US footprint following on from the recently acquired Covina, California-based business unit from Excelitas Technologies. Torotel will extend TT’s list of blue-chip US aerospace and defense customers, providing access to growth programs with sole-sourced positions on major platforms. TT is committed to investing in the business to further improve the business’ growth prospects and engineering capability.
Richard Tyson, CEO, TT Electronics said:
“We are really excited about the acquisition of Torotel, a business we have been tracking for some time. It is an excellent fit and complementary to TT’s existing US power electronics business, strengthening our position in critical defense applications. We look forward to welcoming the Torotel team into the TT group.”
Michael Leahan, EVP, TT Electronics Power Solutions said:
“Torotel is a clear fit with TT’s strategy to build leading positions in the aerospace and defense markets where the proliferation of electronics is driving demand for our custom power management and conversion systems. We are excited to welcome Torotel employees and customers to TT, and remain committed to providing our customers with the best service, products and value available.”
