Amphenol Corp. announced that it is acquiring Eden Prairie-based sensor manufacturer MTS Systems Corp. in a deal valued at $1.7 billion.
A press release said that the deal was approved by the boards of both companies. With $895 million in revenue last year, MTS is the 30th largest public company in Minnesota, according to Business Journal research. Amphenol had 2019 sales of $8.2 billion.
MTS is organized into two business segments: sensors, and test and simulation. Amphenol said the acquisition will give it the industry’s broadest range of sensors and sensor-based products, while the test and simulation segment has near and long-term potential.
