Resilience Capital Partners-backed Trialon Corp. is acquiring the customer technology center of Delphi Technologies.
Located in Auburn Hills, Michigan, the company, which will be known as Trialon-Auburn Hills, is a state-of-the-art testing facility in a strategic location in Greater Detroit that includes over 130,000 square feet of combined lab and office space. With the acquisition, Trialon adds a wide variety of additional testing capabilities including vehicle emissions, engine and chassis dynamometers, vehicle test lab, acoustics, materials and design and fabrication.
Trialon-Auburn Hills also includes complementary testing capabilities to Trialon's Burton, Michigan and Kokomo, Indiana facilities' current capabilities of environmental, corrosion, vibration and EMC testing.
"Since our acquisition of Trialon in 2016, we have been heavily investing in broadening Trialon's testing capabilities,” said Resilience Capital Partners Co-CEO Bassem Mansour. “With this acquisition, Trialon is able to further broaden its service offering to existing and new clients and continue positioning itself as a value-added partner to its customers.”.
Trialon CEO Jerry Johnson added: "Delphi Technologies and Trialon have had a successful long-term partnership and Delphi knew Trialon would be the right company to acquire and grow the Trialon-Auburn Hills laboratory. This acquisition further strengthens Trialon's competitive position in the marketplace and opens a strong strategic footprint in Greater Detroit."
This is the second transaction announced by Resilience Capital Partners in the last three weeks. On December 23, Resilience portfolio company Porter's Group announced its merger with Maysteel Industries LLC, a portfolio company of Littlejohn Capital LLC.
Headquartered in Cleveland, Resilience invests in niche-oriented manufacturing, value added distribution and business service companies with sustainable market positions and a clear path to cash flow improvement.
