Test standards, such as ASTM and ISO, are used worldwide to ensure product quality and instil confidence in test results. These standards provide operators with the ability to test to a certain standard method, ensuring that the right parameters are being measurement appropriately for their specific application.

Our vision at PPT is to create a multi-branded global platform that can provide testing solutions across all different types of standards, materials and applications. We are pursuing acquisitions in the following business areas:

By End Market

By Material

By Test Type

Established and well respected brand names with global distribution channels

Technology leadership in their niche application

ACCELERATED PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT
Many of the companies we are targeting manufacturer products testing for the similar physical properties (abrasion, tensile, impact, etc.), however they are designed with a specific application in mind. There is an opportunity to leverage the combined group R&D department to apply similar technologies in new applications to help fill gaps in the product portfolio.

IMPROVED SALES & SERVICE COVERAGE
Since the underlying technology is relatively similar, there is an opportunity to leverage the service and calibration departments for a global multi-site organization.

DIVERSIFICATION
Lower business risk from a more diverse customer base and more highly balanced geographic and end market split.

COMBINED INTERNAL MANUFACTURING CAPABILITY (if needed)
