Cyient Ltd, through its wholly owned US subsidiary Cyient Inc., has acquired 100 per cent ownership of Certon Software Inc. The acquisition will strengthen Cyient’s business by adding unique, model-based systems engineering tools and test automation capabilities that are used to design, develop, simulate, electronic hardware.

Based in Melbourne, Florida, US, with a core team of around 45 people and formed in 2006, Certon is an IP-led provider of full product life-cycle engineering services to companies seeking certification approval for safety-critical products. The solutions cater primarily to the aerospace and defence industry, and also in the medical and transportation sectors.

Anand Parameswaran, Senior VP (Aerospace & Defence), Cyient said, " The acquisition of Certon will not only further strengthen our presence in the avionics market, but also support our manufacturing services. Its solutions in the regulatory certification design, development, validation and verification (V&V) domain will enhance our competencies in the medical and transportation industries as well."

Timothy Stockton, CEO and Founder of Certon expressed confidence that the partnership would lead to bigger accomplishments together in the marketplace.

Cyient had earlier announced a definitive agreement to acquire Certon on January 24.
