H2 Equity Partners has agreed to sell TB&C to Delta Electronics
TB&C, headquartered in Germany is a leading manufacturer of bespoke high-voltage components and sunroof systems for the automotive industry. The company was founded in 2004 and has since emerged into a global leader for e-mobility components and systems within the battery ecosystem for leading automakers. TB&C operates manufacturing sites in Germany, Romania and Mexico with approximately 600 employees. The company’s sales in 2022 amount to approximately €74 million.
The transaction is expected to enhance Delta Electronics’ electric vehicle (EV) battery management system capabilities by integrating TB&C’s technologies with Delta’s automotive component product lines. It will also generate substantial synergies by leveraging both companies’ research and development (R&D) and manufacturing resources to accelerate Delta’s overall EV business expansion on global scale. The total agreed enterprise value amounts to €142 million.
