SYCAMORE, Ill. - IDEAL INDUSTRIES, INC announced today a strategic divestiture of Casella, a global manufacturer and supplier of occupational and environmental monitoring equipment, selling the U.K.-based company to TSI Instruments Ltd., a subsidiary of US-based TSI Incorporated, an international leader in the design and production of precision measurement instruments. This change best serves Casella's growth plans as IDEAL focuses on core business, channel segments and customers. IDEAL continues to strengthen their strategic global focus on growth in professional electrician products, high power density connectors and superior charging systems.
“IDEAL is committed to growing our core businesses and is pleased to find such a great buyer for Casella. TSI’s synergies and closely aligned strategic initiatives make this an exciting transaction for all parties,” said Doug Sanford, Senior Vice President at IDEAL INDUSTRIES, INC. “We thank past and present Casella employees for their valuable contributions over the many years of being a part of the IDEAL family of brands.”
Casella became part of the IDEAL INDUSTRIES, INC. portfolio in April 2006. While part of IDEAL, they introduced the world's first all-digital badge style noise dosimeter and M1-rated, intrinsically safe pump for mines. Casella has a long history of quality and innovation, dating back to 1799, which includes supplying David Livingstone and Charles Darwin with instrumentation for exploration and scientific work.
“TSI’s acquisition of Casella will deliver a market leading portfolio of occupational health and safety products,” said Helen Brocklebank, corporate finance partner and head of M&A in the West Midlands at RSM U.K. “This transaction will enable both parties to provide innovative and ground-breaking solutions for customers and accelerate Casella’s ambitions to enter new markets.”
Since 1961, TSI has been providing a comprehensive range of solutions with unparalleled reliability and accuracy necessary to accomplish business goals including workflow management, software services and measurement instrumentation.
