Trexon, a portfolio company of Audax Private Equity, has completed its acquisition of Power Connector Inc., a supplier of tactical communications for military applications.

PCI is a defense logistics agency QPL manufacturer of MIL-DTL-55181 and MIL-DTL-55116 connectors. The firm’s power connectors, audio connectors and other interconnect components are designed into hand-held and mounted radio systems. PCI’s offerings complement Trexon’s existing connectivity offerings for mission critical applications.

“The addition of PCI adds yet another component to the value-add cable, connectivity / interconnect solutions that are currently offered by Trexon within the aerospace and defense markets, while expanding our product portfolio into specialty power and audio connectors,” Dr. Nildeep Patel, president of Trexon engineered products division. “We believe this will be a symbiotic relationship, allowing PCI to benefit from our broad technical expertise, international salesforce, and global footprint.”

“We believe the new coupling of Trexon’s engineered products group with PCI’s advancement into lighter weight, small form factor connectors paves the way for a quicker time to market in support of the dynamic needs of the defense communication industry,” added Todd West, PCI general manager.
