The company has relationships with leading manufacturers in the semiconductor, aerospace and defense, industrial technology, medical technology, and energy sectors. Headquartered in St. Albans, Vermont, STC also has operations in Santa Ana, California.

“STC Material Solutions fits our growth strategy well, with strong IDEX qualities, including great teams with technical and domain expertise who develop and build highly-engineered products that command a premium,” IDEX Chief Executive Officer and President Eric Ashleman said. “STC expands our growing material science expertise, affording opportunities to collaborate with other IDEX critical components businesses on comprehensive solution sets for customers.”

IDEX continues to put its strong balance sheet to work, prioritizing the identification and completion of high-quality acquisitions focused on expanding our expertise into dynamic markets that support our future vision and growth strategy.

IDEX purchased STC from Artemis for cash consideration of $206 million USD, subject to customary post-closing adjustments. IDEX funded the acquisition using cash on hand and proceeds from its revolving credit facility. STC will be included in the Health & Science Technologies (HST) segment.
