The acquisitions further strengthen Volex’s profile across North America, adding advanced wire harness manufacturing services, and higher order volume delivery capabilities in the white goods market. They also expand our presence into the defence market and add new access into the “off-highway” market sector, supporting industrial, agricultural and construction machinery manufacturers through its ruggedised wire harness capabilities.

Commenting on the acquisition, Nat Rothschild, Executive Chairman of Volex said, “The acquisitions of Prodamex and TC further expand our geographic coverage and technical capabilities in North America.  Each of these businesses represent a compelling acquisition in markets that offer us growth opportunities.

Prodamex complements the recent acquisition of DE-KA in the white goods market, expanding our capabilities into the North American market while TC builds on the recent acquisition of Irvine and our strategic intent to develop Volex’s presence in the defence market, broadening our offering into military vehicle wiring harnesses.

These acquisitions are a further indication of our ability to identify and acquire attractive businesses for compelling valuations. Our buy and build strategy, along with our pursuit of operational excellence and organic growth, are a key element of our strategy as we target $650 million in revenues and $65 million of underlying operating profit by 2024.”
