CHARLOTTE, NC – SPX Corporation (NYSE: SPW) today announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement with Teradyne Inc. to acquire all the assets of the company's Teradyne Diagnostics Solutions business. Based in Manchester, UK, Teradyne Diagnostics Solutions is a leading global supplier of diagnostic solutions for transportation OEMs and automotive dealerships. The terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

For over 22 years, Teradyne Diagnostics Solutions has provided diagnostic solutions to transportation OEMs, tier-one suppliers and independent service providers. Today, the business supports more than 127 manufacturing locations worldwide, more than 25,000 dealerships, and more than 70,000 end users. Teradyne Diagnostics Solutions generated approximately $40 million in revenue in 2010.

Teradyne Diagnostics Solutions has operations in Manchester, Brussels, Munich, Detroit and Tokyo, and currently employs approximately 200 employees. Following the close of the acquisition, TDS will become part of SPX Service Solutions within SPX's Test and Measurement segment.

"SPX Service Solutions supports nearly every aspect of service readiness for our global automotive OEM partners, and this acquisition will serve to further enhance our global presence and capabilities to deliver innovative solutions to all segments of the vehicle service market," said David Kowalski, segment president. "Automotive companies today compete globally, and they need a global partner who can support all their diagnostics needs as well as the broad geographic footprint necessary to implement their vehicle service strategies at the local level."

"We already work closely with OEMs to engineer custom diagnostic and service tools used in their service organizations," added Kowalski. "This acquisition will extend our capabilities in designing diagnostic solutions for vehicles of ever-increasing complexity, including the growing fleet of today's electric vehicles."

Teradyne Diagnostics Solutions programs software in the electronic controllers on vehicles, tests the systems as they are assembled, and conducts final manufacturing checks for quality. At OEM dealerships, the company is focused on fixing faults in the service bay. The company's full range of products and services includes software, software customization and authoring, hardware, consultancy, training, call center support, project management, and outsourcing resource.
