Keysight Technologies acquires Thales Calibration Services

Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS), a technology company that helps enterprises, service providers, and governments accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world, has acquired Thales Calibration Services in Melbourne, Australia, a subsidiary of Thales Group, effective July 2, 2018. This acquisition establishes Keysight as the largest calibration and support services organization in Australia.

Thales Calibration Services is a world-class commercial calibration facility specializing in dimensional, pressure, mass, and temperature metrology.
