The deal strengthens the company’s portfolio of sensing and signal conditioning technologies.

PCB Piezotronics Inc. (www.pcb.com), Depew, N.Y., announced on Sept. 2 that it has acquired a substantial portion of assets and intellectual property from RS Technologies Ltd., a supplier of load cells, torque transducers, wheel force transducers, and fastening/assembly test equipment to the automotive, aerospace, power tool, and heavy equipment industries.

PCB Piezotronics completed the acquisition through PCB Load & Torque Inc., its wholly‐owned subsidiary, which purchased the RS Technologies Ltd. assets, and which will own and operate the newly acquired business. PCB Load & Torque Inc. will operate out of the existing RS Technologies Ltd. headquarters in Farmington Hills, Mich., and employ many of the current RS Technologies Ltd. production, engineering, and support staff. A new Web site for PCB Load & Torque Inc. has been launched with updated product information and news at www.pcbloadtorque.com.

The acquisition strengthens the current PCB Piezotronics portfolio, which already covers a wide variety of sensing and signal conditioning technologies. With the addition of many new products from the RS Technologies Ltd. catalog, the additional experienced staff, and state-of-the-art production/calibration center, PCB Piezotronics and its affiliated companies can now better serve their customers worldwide, the company said.
