("Volex" or the "Company")
Completion of Acquisitions - Prodamex and TC
Volex plc (AIM:VLX), the global supplier of integrated manufacturing services and power products, today announces the completion of the Prodamex SA de CV ("Prodamex") and Terminal & Cable TC Inc. ("TC") acquisitions following receipt of requisite regulatory approvals. Prodamex and TC have been acquired for a total cash consideration of CAD$22.5 million (USD$17.8 million) funded from the Company's existing debt facilities.
Prodamex operates from an advanced manufacturing facility serving customers in Mexico, USA and Canada. It brings to Volex additional higher volume manufacturing capability in Central Mexico, complementing the existing manufacturing plants in Tijuana and Juarez, providing customers with additional sourcing flexibility and production capacity.
TC's facility in Quebec, Canada provides Volex with ruggedised wire harness manufacturing capabilities focusing on the attractive "off-highway" market sector, supporting defence, industrial, agricultural and construction machinery customers.
Commenting on the acquisitions, Nat Rothschild, Executive Chairman of Volex said:
"The completion of the Prodamex and TC acquisitions increases our geographic coverage and technical capabilities in the key North American market. TC provides further expansion into defence markets following our recent acquisition of Irvine Electronics while Prodamex complements our strong, global proposition for domestic appliance manufacturers, giving us added scale and reach. The acquisitions support our strategy of developing Volex's presence in attractive sectors where we can leverage our expertise and global reach to achieve profitable growth."
