Rochester, N.Y.-based Transcat, a global distributor of professional grade test, measurement and calibration instruments, and accredited provider of calibration and repair services, has acquired privately-held Westcon Inc., a Portland, Ore.-based test and measurement instruments distributor and calibration services provider.

Westcon distributes over 60 product lines of test and measurement instruments to its approximately 1,800 customers, including wind turbine manufacturers.

"This acquisition provides us a West Coast distribution operation that enables us to provide faster service to a broader base of potential customers, while adding a Pacific Northwest full-service calibration operation that geographically complements and expands our nationwide network to a total of 12 laboratories," says Charles P. Hadeed, CEO, president and chief operating officer of Transcat. "Of added value is Westcon's focus on the wind industry – an ideal, high-growth target market that fits well with our energy market strategy."
