Curtiss-Wright Corporation (NYSE: CW) today announced that it has completed the acquisition of the assets of Nuclear Power Services Inc. (NPSI) for approximately CAD 9.0 million (approximately $8.0 million) in cash. NPSI is a leading supplier of products and services to the Canadian nuclear market. The acquired company will operate within Curtiss-Wright's Energy segment.

"The acquisition of NPSI expands our nuclear manufacturing and test operations by providing an enhanced channel to the international fleet of Canadian-designed nuclear power plants," said David C. Adams, President and CEO of Curtiss-Wright Corporation. "Further, NPSI strengthens our leadership position in the areas of equipment qualification and Commercial Grade Dedication (CGD) services, where we expect to leverage the synergies that exist between our existing equipment testing businesses. Once again, this transaction is consistent with our stated acquisition strategy to target smaller, strategic, bolt-on companies, while enhancing our overall operating margins over time. It also builds on Curtiss-Wright's versatile and powerful nuclear infrastructure focused on providing solutions for operating reactors throughout the world."

Founded in 2000, NPSI operates an equipment manufacturing and test facility in Canada. The facility provides replacement equipment, aftermarket parts and testing services that improve the safety, reliability and extend the life of operating nuclear power plants.
