AB Dynamics plc is pleased to announce that it has completed the acquisition of Vadotech Pte Ltd and Zynit Pte Ltd (collectively 'Vadotech Group').
Founded in 1997 and with 140 employees, the Vadotech Group is a leading supplier of testing services in the Asia Pacific region, headquartered in Singapore with key operations in China, Germany and Japan.

The business has long standing relationships with German automotive OEMs, providing vehicle testing services to local operations, underpinned by long term customer framework agreements.
The Acquisition provides a significantly larger physical presence for AB Dynamics in Asia Pacific and the Group will invest in the integration to establish a strong regional hub for the wider business.
Dr James Routh, Chief Executive Officer, said:
'The Acquisition of Vadotech Group supports the Group's strategic initiatives by broadening the scope of the Group's product and services offering, further expanding our reach into new strategically important territories and increasing the range of testing services, which in turn increases visibility of future revenue.
