In August, 2009, PCB Piezotronics, Inc. acquired substantially all of the assets and intellectual property from RS Technologies Ltd, a leading supplier of load cells, torque transducers, wheel force transducers, and fastening/assembly test equipment to the Automotive, Aerospace, Power Tool, and Heavy Equipment industries.
PCB Piezotronics completed the acquisition through PCB Load & Torque, Inc., its wholly-owned subsidiary, which purchased the RS Technologies Ltd. assets and owns and operates the acquired business. PCB Load & Torque, Inc. operates out of the existing RS Technologies Ltd. world headquarters in Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA.
The combination of RS Technologies Ltd. products and PCB Piezotronics, Inc. load cells and torque transducers complement each other and has made PCB Load & Torque, Inc. a proven success and enabled PCB Piezotronics and its affiliated companies to better serve customers worldwide.
Currently, PCB Load & Torque, Inc., an ISO 9001 registered company, designs and manufactures a full line of high quality, precision load cells, wheel force transducers, torque transducers, and telemetry systems; while RS Technologies, a division of PCB Load & Torque, specializes in fastener torque-tension test systems.
