TES announced it has increased its design capacity and capabilities by acquiring Assystem’s Quimper Design Centre. The move adds significant competence to TES Design capability and enhances its ability to deliver complete product realization to customers under its unique Custom Design and Manufacturing (CDM) model. The move increases TES Electronic Solutions ability to deliver services from concept through volume manufacturing and lifecycle management by adding mechanical design, product certification and acoustics competences in addition to high-end hardware, software and wireless skills.
“Companies come to TES for complete product design and manufacturing solutions,” said Michel Desbard, CEO of TES Electronic Solutions. “With this acquisition, TES is able to deliver mechanical design and product certification in addition to our existing competences to further reduce our customers’ time to market.”
TES launched its CDM initiative in 2005 and has grown its global footprint and service breadth since then with acquisitions in India, Malaysia, Germany and the US. The company is now capable of delivering complete product realization from concept through to volume manufacturing to a world-wide customer base.
The Quimper Design Centre has 28 highly skilled engineering staff. All will join TES Electronic Solutions. The location is equipped with laboratories for product certification, mechanical design, and acoustics.
“Assystem wants to focus more on its core business which is delivery of services throughout the product life cycle, from R&D to operating support, within a wide range of industrial sectors: Automotive, Aerospace, Technologies, Energy-Nuclear, Naval-Defence, Life Sciences, etc.,” said Gérard Brescon of Assystem. “The Quimper Design Centre skills and competences are much more aligned with the TES core strategy and we believe that the true value of the employees will be much better realized with this transaction.”
