CertTech announced today that the company has acquired Butterfield Engineering, a specialized test engineering firm focused on modular test systems and test software development. This announcement comes on the heels of CertTech’s March 2020 acquisition of WTI.
With this acquisition, CertTech continues to press forward as a leader in custom test system development. We now can more comprehensively serve government prime contractors and leading Fortune 500 companies in highly regulated vertical industries such as national defense, aerospace, medical devices, automotive and ground transportation.
Strengthening Test Across the Product Development Lifecycle
Model-in-the-loop (MIL), software-in-the-loop (SIL), hardware-in-the-loop (HIL), physical test, and regulatory compliance often are treated as entirely separate entities in the product design and development processes because they require different competencies – however, all are required for complete test programs.
The CertTech approach of acquiring companies like Butterfield Engineering and WTI brings these competencies together with fluid teams and interdisciplinary skill sets to transition test programs seamlessly from one step to the next. In addition, CertTech now can more quickly and effectively implement iterative test processes as designs change and improve with testing throughout the development lifecycle.
For best-in-class organizations, test is a competitive advantage. By expanding end-to-end test capabilities in-house, we can help clients iterate faster, make better design decisions, and lower the total cost of test.
Leveraging industry-leading hardware with key partnerships
Both CertTech and Butterfield Engineering have strong, existing relationships with key instrumentation companies such as NI and Keysight. With access to trusted technology, CertTech can provide world-class solutions specifically customized to the demands of your application. Both companies are NI Alliance Partners and Butterfield Engineering brings many NI Certified LabVIEW Architects (CLAs) and Certified LabVIEW Developers (CLDs) to the CertTech team.
CertTech will continue to grow their national footprint with current locations across the US.
