Massachusetts-based weight and force measurement firm Group Four on Tuesday announced its acquisition of Virginia test measurement company Cooper Instruments.

Company officials said Group Four would provide Cooper with access to the custom load cell market, while the deal would add opportunities in the calibration, pressure transducer, load cell and test stand markets for Cooper’s new parent company.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Group Four said the subsidiary would retain the Cooper name in an effort to “utilize and grow” the brand.

“This is a historic day for both companies," said Group Four Chairman and CEO Steve Torres. "It is a perfect integration of complementary capabilities.”
