Boston, MA – April 26th, 2024 – Trexon, a portfolio company of Audax Private Equity and a leading provider of specialty connectivity solutions for mission-critical applications, announced today that it successfully completed the acquisition of CR Encapsulation Ltd. (“CRE”). Headquartered in Aberdeen Scotland, CRE specializes in the design, engineering, and manufacturing of subsea connectivity solutions in the marine, manned and unmanned underwater vehicle, renewables, and oil and gas markets. This acquisition underscores Trexon’s persistent dedication to broadening its footprint in the subsea domains.

Through the deal, Trexon is broadening its range of subsea connector, wire and cable solutions, as well as hull penetrators, junction boxes, and subsea termination solutions.

Regarding the addition of CRE, Mark Twaalfhoven, President, and CEO of Trexon stated:

“CRE enhances Trexon’s offerings in the subsea markets, expanding our portfolio and customer base. This partnership promises mutual benefits, enabling CRE to advance its capabilities and global presence through Trexon’s investment, technical proficiency, and worldwide reach. We want to welcome the CRE team to the Trexon Family.”

From CRE’s perspective, the combination will enable access to new markets, accelerate the delivery of new technology and increase CRE’s manufacturing capacity and knowhow.

Speaking on the transaction, Craig Simpson, Director of CRE, stated:

“CRE has developed over the years from a modest operation supporting local customers to a significant manufacturer that now designs, builds and ships to customers all over the world. Our products are used in a wide range of applications from the splash zone to the bottom of the Mariana Trench, where our designs were used on a manned vehicle that set a new depth record. I look forward to supporting Trexon as they leverage the capabilities of CRE with the other portfolio of ten companies and to rapidly accelerate the future development of CRE as we move to the next level. It is now the right time to become part of a larger organization that will enable access to new markets, accelerate the delivery of new technology and increase our manufacturing capacity and knowhow.”
