SERMA Group (“SERMA“) has acquired Microtech Laboratories (“Microtech“), an electronics and semiconductor failure analysis laboratory based in Plano, Texas.

Founded in January 2000, Microtech is an independent laboratory specializing in failure analysis and reverse engineering of semiconductors. The company offers a wide range of expert services such as decapsulation or micro sectioning, reverse engineering, schematic extraction, failure analysis and construction of electronic components and printed circuits, as well as associated consulting and training.

The acquisition of Microtech enables SERMA, and in particular its subsidiary SERMA Technologies, to extend geographically its offer of analysis, design and consulting services, which is already firmly established in France with its 6 laboratories in close proximity to its 600 European customers. This acquisition gives Microtech the opportunity to expand its services offerings on the North America market, drawing in particular on the skills and resources of SERMA Technologies, and to offer its reverse engineering and schematic extraction services in Europe.

EC M&A acted as the exclusive financial adviser to SERMA on this transaction.
