DeFelsko acquires Press-O-Film manufacturer Testex

DeFelsko acquired its former cooperation partner Testex December. Testex is the US based manufacturer of Press-O-Film replication tape, a consumable used in conjunction with the PosiTector RTR probe module developed by DeFelsko to determine surface profile and measure roughness.

For DeFelsko, the acquisition serves to ensure the long-term availability of the Press-O-Film set and other Testex products worldwide. At the same time, the long-established U.S. measuring instrument specialist is rounding out its own portfolio in the area of surface inspection.

After the takeover, Testex will be continued in the proven manner as an independent brand under the direction of DeFelsko. However, orders for Testex products will in future be processed at DeFelsko’s headquarters in Ogdensburg/New York and shipped from there.

In this regard, DeFelsko emphasises that it will minimise the impact on customers and distributors as much as possible during the transition period. In addition, DeFelsko will maintain all existing relationships with Testex suppliers. The previous pricing structure and discount conditions will also be maintained for a transitional period – probably until mid-2023.
