TestEquity Acquires Grainger Subsidiary Techni-Tool

The move comes six months after Pennslyvania-based TestEquity announced the acquisition of Stanley Black & Decker subsidiary JENSEN Tools + Supply back in January.

Six months after announcing the purchase of Stanley Black & Decker subsidiary JENSEN Tools + Supply, California-based TestEquity announced Wednesday that it has acquired W.W. Grainger subsidiary Techni-Tool Inc.

Moorepark, CA-based TestEquity states that Techni-Tool employs about 200 people and offers nearly 25,000 products and services.

"We are very excited to welcome the dedicated employees, customers and suppliers of Techni-Tool to TestEquity," Techni-Tool president and CEO Dan Copsey said. "Our combined company allows us to provide our customers a comprehensive offering of Test & Measurement Solutions along with eMRO Tools & Supplies from a single-source supplier."
