CN Rood takes over ABtronix

Breda (NL), May 2022 - CN Rood, leader in knowledge and solutions in the field of test and measurement equipment, further expands its position in the Benelux and Scandinavia by acquiring ABtronix, professional T&M equipment. The products and services of ABtronix fit perfectly into the existing portfolio. As a result of the acquisition, ABtronix customers are assured of trusted solutions, service and support, now and in the future.

ABtronix, based in Breda, represents ten Test & Measurement suppliers in the Benelux. ABtronix is strong in vibration testing and also an established name in for example performing calibrations and providing CAN-Bus test solutions for the automotive market. ABtronix delivers solutions, gives training and offers extensive (calibration) services and support.

Benny Polleunis, CEO of CN Rood: "The products of ABtronix are a perfect addition to our portfolio. A good example are the hydraulic and electro-mechanical shakers. By combining these shakers with our sensor and data acquisition solutions, we are now able to deliver turnkey setups."

ABtronix owner Ad Bastiaanssen recognises the opportunities and sees CN Rood as the perfect acquisition party. Ad Bastiaanssen: " In the takeover, ensuring continuity for both customers and staff was central to me. I have now passed the retirement age and I increasingly get questions about the future of ABtronix. Our clients want to know where they stand. In CN Rood, we have found a strong Dutch company that shares our passion for technology. With CN Rood, our clients are also assured of the service and support they are used to in the future."

ABtronix customers will initially notice little of the takeover. Benny Polleunis: "We are taking over all the staff and the office in Breda. We are also very pleased that Ad Bastiaanssen will remain involved until the end of 2023. We also want to expand the existing ABtronix team in the field of sales and service. Initially, customers will not notice much of the takeover, but over time, they will certainly get to know CN Rood's complementary products as well."
